I'd like to add a routine similar to GRP_INFOI to HDS that allows me to
warn of HDS locator leaks in applications. I think that David's patch to
KAPPA to trap GRP ID leaks was useful and it is definitely the case that
HDS knows how many locators it has used up.
HDS_SHOW would be perfect if only it returned the information to the
caller rather than writing it to STDOUT.
I propose to try to implement a routine called.... hdsInfoi (wow)
that would look something like:
hdsInfoi( "LOCATORS", size_t *count, int * status);
hdsInfoi( "FILES", size_t * count, int *status);
to get the number of active locators and number of open files.
Does that API seem reasonable? Given hdsShow, I can make a stab at this.
David: Was the "i" in "Infoi" meant to indicate "integer"?
