|Summary||0000373: Add ability to call arbitrary routine via janactl|
|Description||A potentially useful feature would be the ability to send a string to a running JANA process and have it use that to identify a subroutine via dlsym and call it. This would allow someone to write code in one plugin that could then be called remotely via janactl without any specific dispatching code for that routine being written into the janactl callback. It would also allow subroutines compiled into the main executable to be called.|
There may be a limitation on the types of arguments that can be passed in via the cMsg. One would also want a message type that can set a global variable to a new value.
While we're at it, we should add getter and setter methods for configuration parameters.
