Yes Sir! :-)
Not sure if we can toss Nettle... NOW I remember why I chose to go
with Nettle in the first place. For the classes in the network kit
that use nettle, they have an inlined method called "GetImpl()" that
returns a pointer to the class' member data, which happens to be a
Nettle object (NetAddress == NLAddress, NetBuffer == NLPacket,
NetEndpoint == NLEndpoint). How would you propose this be handled?
Seems to me that the only way to be binary compatible is to use Nettle.
Although, I suppose I could code up some Nettle-like construct
(NLXXX-like classes but just the data), and return these from the
GetImpl() method but that also would more than likely violate the prime
directive (R5 binary compatible).
CC-ing the OBOS list to get any other's ideas besides just yours. :-)
