    Will you use a Messenger library...

    If there is a C library to connect to MSN messenger service.. would you use it..... If so what would you use it for in your programs... and what platform would you use it in... would you prefer it to be ANSI standard (Uisng GCC) or Windows Based (Using windows socket libraries)....


    thanx in advance for your replies...

    I know that there is a c++ library that connects to AIM...a person I know uses it to communicate with his bot via AIM...it is windows based

    @DavidP: What Vasanth says (types) is "if there is". What he probably wanted to say was "if there was".
    EDIT: Notice the conditional statement

    I guess the answer from DavidP would be "Yes definetly".

    I'd have to see what it does and how it approaches the communication.
    You should code it in standard C/C++. There are people who use the MSN Messenger service from Linux too, and probably many other platforms.

    sorry about my english..
    I have started to code one... The problem is the new MSN protocl uses SSL.. so anyof you know a generic SSL library i can use.. It has to be built using ANSI C.. else i will have to research and build my own..

    what do you expect out of the MSN library if one was made available....

    a generic SSL library i can use
    www.openssl.org has a free SSL/TLS library.

    A Messenger library should connect to the network with just an user-name and a password, and be able to send and receive messages from a contact, as well as files.
    A good idea would be to be able to set callbacks for certain situtaions (user logs in/out, receives IM, ...).
    Just some ideas...
