[Spread-users] commandline friendly monitor?

Sorry I didn't get back to you sooner.  I don't have anything like
this, but it wouldn't be difficult to write at all.

Look at the source of spmonitor, monitor.c.  It would be trivial to
add a command-line argument of list of arguments, e.g. a list of
daemon names, and set up a status query [as in Activate_status()] in
this way instead of from user input.  You could easily hack the
Report_message() function in order to customize the format of the
output, or do some evaluation of the GlobalStatus information.

With only slightly more work, you could create a version that acts
more as a one-shot query, most trivially by adding an exit() call at
the end of Report_message().  You could add a static variable to act
as a counter, and thus enable the exit() to take place only after the
last expected report arrives.
