Hi Abu,

What is it that you're trying to accomplish? Modifying the layout of TC 
messages unfortunately makes your version of olsrd incompatible with 
other versions. So, if your goal is simply to enable an OLSR node to 
distribute two decimal numbers to all other OLSR nodes on the network, 
then defining your own private OLSR message type and generate/parse 
these messages by means of a plugin is probably the easiest way to 
achieve your goal. It's also the most compatible way as other nodes that 
do not understand your newly introduced messages will just ignore them.

Have a look at Bruno's nameservice plugin for an example of this. He 
uses his own messages with a message type of 129 to let an OLSR node 
broadcast its name to all other OLSR nodes on the network.
