int ds_examine(text) char *text;

Interactive examination of data. If text is blank the routine enters interactive mode (on standard input and output) to allow the user to interogate the contents of memory - type '?' to see the possible commands. If text is non-blank it is treated as if it was typed from the keyboard, it is executed and the routine returns.

To exit from interactive mode type
