Hi Tony,

the plugins are shared libaries loaded during runtime using the appropriate 
ldso functions. The *.so imports and exports functions / data references to 
be resolved by the dynamic linker. You may RTFM this:

Thx for the brieft description about the olsr_plugin.c in txtinfo,
I still got one more question.

I still cannot figure out how the plugin connect the other files(such as, 
olsr_txtinfo.h and olsr_txtinfo.c).
Is that simply add the following line:
    #include <olsr_txtinfo.h>
in the olsr_plugin.c??

And as I know, there has no "main()" for plugin program.
So where is the entry point to those plugin??
How come olsrd know which function to use in olsr_txtinfo.c???? =[

I understand olsr_plugin.c will be read by olsr and refer to it's my_init(),
however I don't know how olsrd know which function to use in olsr_txtinfo.c~

>*eg* Yes, actually we are looking for someone who is reworking that

I am looking forward to see this page,
as I really need more information about implementing a plugin.
