Convenience functions

struct proc_dir_entry* create_proc_read_entry(const char*  name,
 mode_t  mode,
 struct proc_dir_entry*  parent,
 read_proc_t*  read_proc,
 void*  data);

This function creates a regular file in exactly the same way as create_proc_entry from the section called “Creating a regular file” does, but also allows to set the read function read_proc in one call. This function can set the data as well, like explained in the section called “A single call back for many files”.
