I think this is basically the same issue I am talking about.<br>For me, the "Device id" is the CPU number or IP address for grid<br>computing. But the point of the namescope.[ch] subroutines I<br>made are actually I think to address this issue also so I am interested
<br>to understand more about how this is supposed to be solved.<br>Is there already a standard API for ListDevices()?<br><br>Best regards,<br><br>Rudi<br><br><div><span class="gmail_quote">On 5/2/07, <b class="gmail_sendername">
