ccs_test(8): not fully completed yet (another email will follow).

ccs_test should go away. It was never intended to be used as a production tool, it was simply intended to be a tool to test ccs.

Indeed but it used as such and this is a fact :)

Futhermore, the fact that you must create connections and then use those connection ID's in order to extract information from ccs is overkill. What we really want is a simple tool that handles xpath queries for config information. The idea of "connections" should be hidden from the user.

Not anymore. with the new libccs, there is no need to establish a connection. You just need to pass something > 0 instead of the fd.
I kept the fd option around to avoid breaking the compatibility.

What ccs_test is missing is only an option to select full xpath vs xpath lite at the moment.

I believe there is some overlap between ccs_test and ccs_tool. If I recall, ccs_tool can handle some simple xpath queries. Even better is that users do not have to create connections, etc.

No, ccs_tool doesn't handle queries at all.

As above, no need to create connections anylonger :) I only need to finish that switch and write those changes.


I'm going to make him an offer he can't refuse.
