libsysobj - system object database library
#include <sysobj.h> cc [ flag... ] file... -lsysobj [ library... ]
The functions in this library perform operations on the system object database, a database of system objects, their identifying properties, and namespaces.
The library defines the following handle for an object in the database:
handle for an object in the database
Each object in the database belongs to at least one class, the primary class, which is specified when it is created. Objects can belong to multiple classes, but have only one primary class.
An object can, as a member of a certain class, appear in a number of namespaces, where it is identified by one or more aliases. An object may have a number of properties, subdivided in to property classes.
The library supports the following operations:
Create or destroy an object
Add or remove an alias for an object
Add or remove a property for an object
Look up objects by their aliases and/or properties
Retrieve aliases or properties for an object
Watch events for certain objects or classes of objects, and retrieve information on those events
The shared object libsysobj.so.1 provides the public interfaces defined below. For more information on shared object interfaces, see the intro(3) man page.
