NAME

remctl_new - Create a new remctl client  

SYNOPSIS

#include <remctl.h>

struct remctl *remctl_new(void);  

DESCRIPTION

remctl_new() creates a new remctl client. The resulting remctl struct is opaque from the perspective of the caller, but should be the first argument to all subsequent calls into the remctl API. Normally, the next call after remctl_new() would be remctl_open() to connect to a remote server.

The resulting struct should be freed by calling remctl_close().  

RETURN VALUE

remctl_new() returns a pointer to an opaque remctl struct on success and NULL on failure. If it returns NULL, errno will be set to an appropriate error code (normally ENOMEM).  

SEE ALSO

remctl_open(3), remctl_command(3), remctl_commandv(3), remctl_output(3), remctl_close(3)

The current version of the remctl library and complete details of the remctl protocol are available from its web page at <http://www.eyrie.org/~eagle/software/remctl/>.
