i think rrdinfo is good. i'll work on something like that.
oh yeah, before i forget, from the GNU libc manual:
"In addition to the names documented in this manual, reserved names
include all external identifiers (global functions and variables) that
begin with an underscore (`_') and all identifiers regardless of use
that begin with either two underscores or an underscore followed by a
capital letter are reserved names. This is so that the library and
header files can define functions, variables, and macros for internal
purposes without risk of conflict with names in user programs."
so, _RRDLIB_H must be changed.
i'll work on the new API on the weekend, or at the beginning of the next
here goes attached the unfinished api for a library for system
monitoring i'm working on. see what u guys think of it, it is object
oriented. i guess rrdtool could be something like this. The style was
taken from XviD's API.
