LibOSDP App Commands

LibOSDP exposes the following structures thought osdp.h. This document attempts to document each of its members. The following structure is used as a wrapper for all the commands for convenience.

struct osdp_cmd {
    enum osdp_cmd_e id; // Command ID. Used to select specific commands in union
    union {
        struct osdp_cmd_led led;
        struct osdp_cmd_buzzer buzzer;
        struct osdp_cmd_text text;
        struct osdp_cmd_output output;
        struct osdp_cmd_comset comset;
        struct osdp_cmd_keyset keyset;
        struct osdp_cmd_mfg mfg;
        struct osdp_cmd_file_tx file_tx;
        struct osdp_status_report status;
    };
};
