[tor-dev] Using Tor as a library

Hi Folks:

I am looking to use Tor as a library for my program. I managed to build it from the sources including the required libraries. But now I am looking for hints on how to replace the SOCKS 4/5 or the transparent proxy with direct calls from my application to link them. I'm hoping somebody here can point me in the right direction. That is turning off all listening for incoming connections. Just my application going through tor circuits.

I am looking not only to send/receive data over tor (looks I can do this touching connection_edge.c) but also to get callbacks reporting connection status (looks I have to change control_event_circuit_status and control_event_circuit_status_minor) and pass configuration data directly instead of loading from a configuration file (seems I have to call set_options at config.c with prefilled or_options_t structure). Just guessing.
