"Invoke a function on an instantiated COM object in the specified THREAD.\n"
"Note: This command sends the current parameter chain to the server, see\n"

"A stub is an instantiated COM object, you can call remote methods on it\n"

const static char SetArgDoc[] =
"Usage: setarg COUNT\n"
" or: setarg [TYPEFLAGS...] VALUE\n"
"The ctf monitor and clients support the concept of marshaling and\n"
"unmarshaling types across the ALPC transport. For example, you want to\n"
"call an RPC with different params like ints, strings, guids, handles,\n"
"etc. These all have to be marshalled by the sender, and unmarshalled by\n"
"the receiver. The process is reversed to retrieve the result.\n\n"
"In general, ctf clients and servers reuse the same buffer for responses.\n"
"All commands that require marshalled parameters use the current chain\n"
"created by setarg, there can only be one chain active at a time. You\n"
"can query the existing chain with \"getarg\".\n\n"
"COUNT is used to create a new chain of the specified length, discarding\n"
"any existing chain. The size of the chain must be known in advance, and\n"
"you cannot alter the size of an existing chain. ctftool warns you if you\n"
"try to do this.\n\n"
"TYPEFLAGS is the combined type and flags for this type, e.g. 0x201\n"
"0x200 is an integer, and 0x01 specified an input. If more than one\n"
"flag is specified, they are OR'd together. Some symbolic names are\n"
"suported, such as MARSHAL_TYPE_COM.\n"
"VALUE is the type-specific value for this parameter, e.g. an integer\n"
"string or handle value.\n\n"
"When specifying a type that accepts arbitrary data, setarg attempts to\n"
"parse VALUE as a GUID, a string if it is surrouded by quotes, and then\n"
"a sequence of hex bytes. An error is returned if the type cannot be parsed.\n"
" To create a parameter chain, first tell ctfmon how many entries there\n"
" are. This must be known before you push values onto the chain.\n"
" ctf> setarg 2\n"
" New Parameter Chain, Length 2\n"
" Now you have an empty chain of 2 parameters, you cant query them yet\n"
" because the size isn't known, e.g.\n"
" ctf> setarg 2\n"
" New Parameter Chain, Length 2\n"
" ctf> getarg 0\n"
" Bad index requested!\n"
" Now you can fill in the parameters, it must be in order.\n"
" ctf> setarg 0x201 0x12345\n"
" This marshals an input integer, and sets it's value to 0x12345.\n\n"
"I know this is complicated...sorry!\n";
static const char GetArgDoc[] =
"Usage: getarg INDEX\n"

static const char WaitDoc[] =
"Like the \"scan\" command, but halts execution until a client matching\n"

"polling for new clients (default=5000).\n"

"in this thread. This is useful when monitoring a new thread with\n"
"\"wait\" while scripting.";
static const char StackDoc[] =
"Usage: stack\n"
"When you marshal parameters to the monitor, it uses some slack space\n"
"in the PORT_MESSAGE to store a temporary pointer. That pointer is not\n"

"You cannot specify message parameters, because the protocol for\n"
"marshalled data doesnt have in-mesage parameters.\n\n"

static const char ModuleDoc[] =
"Usage: module NAME\n"
" or module64 NAME\n"

"NAME is a module name, for example \"kernel32\".\n";
static const char PatchDoc[] =
"Oh boy. If you need precise control over a marshalled parameter created\n"
"with `setarg` then this command will let you modify them in such a way\n"
"that would usually be illegal or or unsupported. You might want to do this\n"
"for exploitation or testing.\n"
"INDEX is the parameter number, it must be a valid index in the current\n"
"parameter chain. See `getarg` and `setarg` for more.\n"
"OFFSET is the byte index into the parameter you want to start modifying.\n"
"VALUE is the new value you want to replace the current value. This can be\n"

"before the patch operation, it is intended for scripting. SHIFT will right\n"
"shift VALUE *after* ADJUST is added.\n"
"If you want to use SHIFT without any adjustment, specify an ADJUST of zero.\n"
"The purpose of SHIFT is you might want to reorder the bytes of a larger\n"
"value, or distribute them differently for an exploit. With SHIFT you can\n"
"extract one byte at a time and insert at a different OFFSET.\n"
"Create a GUID parameter, and patch the first byte.\n"
