Yeah, I imagined that.

I'll look at this code - it might help.

Yes, I a, trying to do that. the RPC docd give me a vague idea on how
the data structures look like anbd how I might be able to access them,
but in reality it's a lot of fiddling to get to the data I want.

Doesn't look like these bindings will get many good friends in the
programmers world in this state.

I like Java very much and will look at these when writing other
management tools - but for a nagios plugin java might not be the right
thing... at least not to be called directly.

Maybe I should look at the perl bindings, but I usually try to avoid
Perl (just a matter of personal taste).
