[olsr-dev] Fetch the routing table from a plugin

Just to make sure, you know how this table is structured?
Every element in the statically allocated array "table" is just a root
element and contains no routing info. So to traverse all routes you
must do:


But you probably know this already :)

The error in your code is that you do not pass a pointer to table[]
as parameter to olsr_plugin_io. You should do:
olsr_plugin_io(GETD__ROUTINGTABLE, &table, sizeof(table));

Off topic: From 0.4.9 plugins will include headers directly from
olsrd source. No more data structre duplication and trouble when
olsrd datatstructures change :)
