    get the status of a friend in Yahoo Messenger?

    how could I get all the status(including text status and online/offline) of all of my friends in frendlist of Yahoo Messenger?
    sniffer or using API like spy++(capture windows content?)?
    are there any easier methods?

    are you talking about writing a program that gets the status or you simple want a method to do it by yourself, like an ready program:

    sniffer or using API like spy++(capture windows content?)?

    tell you the truth, personally i would have written something to simulate the yahoo protocol and connect the server without any external program - call me nuts, but i like it

    I'm talking about writing a program that gets the status of the certain people(ex:those in my friend list). Are there any good ways? Is there any ready-made protool or I have to analyze the protool myself? Is there any ready-made codes for the protool?

    Looks like a good place to start, but you should google alittle more to find more documents and maybe even a ready code
    (if you really want to use one).

    Never the less, you should have a sniffer close by to debug your code, to see if it acts the way it should act. I suggest Ethereal
