Application Instrumentation and Control (AIC) API, Version 1.0

AIC-AL Function and Use
The AIC Application Library (AIC-AL) provides AIC services to
the Application developer. A developer must add calls to the
AIC-AL API into their application program to enable AIC to be
active. When the AIC library is started (see later),
the "management interface" is established
for that application.
The AIC-AL library has the following key components:
A data transport mechanism for communicating with the outside world
A background execution mechanism for running registered polling functions
A background execution mechanism for running registered threshold functions
An object tree of managed objects in memory
The "beginner" AIC developer is likely to take the following simple steps:
Start the library by calling
Create a management object by calling
Set the value of a management object by calling AICAL_SetValuexxxxx
Do repeated update of a value by calling
Close the library at program shutdown by calling
The majority of the features of AIC are provided within the implementation.
