NAME

libsp - Spread Group Communication Client Library

CONTENTS

SYNOPSIS

DESCRIPTION

The Spread libsp library implements the client SP interface to the Spread group communication or multicast message bus system.

DATA STRUCTURES

HEADER FILES

sp.h is the main header and includes necessary defines and types. It also includes the other header files sp_events.h and sp_func.h.

sp_events.h declares the types and functions that make up the E Event-management library.

sp_func.h declares the functions of the SP interface. Since sp.h includes this you should not include this directly.

FILES

No files are required for client applications using the SP library.

DIAGNOSTICS

The library will not output any debugging information except in fatal errors. The SP_error(3) function can be used to print an informative error message when SP functions return an error code.

BUGS

None currently known. Library is only thread-safe if the program is linked with libtsp.a not libsp.a. The non-thread-safe library is provided for those who are writing single-threaded applications and do not want to pay the minimal performance penalty for locking.
