MPAPI.CONF(4) File Formats and Configurations MPAPI.CONF(4)


NAME


mpapi.conf - configuration file for libMPAPI

SYNOPSIS


/etc/mpapi.conf


DESCRIPTION


The /etc/mpapi.conf file is used to specify the vendor-provided plugin
library that is installed on the system. This file is used by the
libMPAPI(3LIB) common library to load the individual plugin library when
its interface is called. If changes are made to the file while the
library is in use, the library should be unloaded and reloaded. Addition
and removal of the plugin library should be handled through
MP_RegisterPlugin(3MPAPI) and MP_DeregisterPlugin(3MPAPI).


Each plugin library entry is a single line of the form:

"id" "library file name"


where

id
The identification of library. It is the resersed
domain name of the vendor followed by . followed by
the vendor specific name of the plugin that uniquely
identifies the plugin library.


library file name
The shared object library file in the absolute
path format.
