CONTENTS

Detailed Description

Calls mib module code written in the old style of code.

This is a backwards compatilibity module that allows code written in the old API to be run under the new handler based architecture. Use it by calling netsnmp_register_old_api().

Function Documentation

netsnmp_mib_handler* get_old_api_handler (void)

returns a old_api handler that should be the final calling handler.

Don’t use this function. Use the netsnmp_register_old_api() function instead.

registers a row within a mib table

Registers an old API set into the mib tree.

Functionally this mimics the old register_mib_context() function (and in fact the new register_mib_context() function merely calls this new old_api one).
