I just wanted to know how xm create command parses the xen-configuration file and attaches the console to the newly built domain.

I know that by using libxc functions, the loading of domainU-linux is possible(int xc_linux_build() ). But I am unable to find an api in libxc to set up the domain-u console , root-file-system and disks.

Please can somebody let me know the apis'/files/method (any help will do) relating to :-

1. attaching the booting domain-u linux kernel to the console.
2. providing access to disk devices that I want the domainU to access and root file system.

I do not want to use the xm tool.

 I would really appreciate any help, like the APIs' in libxc that are used or how "xm create -c"  parses the config file and boots the domainU kernel.                       

Thank you,
Warm Regards,
