It's fairly basic at the moment, but provides classes for Object (a generic OSM object), Node, Segment and Way. There is also a Components class to manage collections of OSM data, a Parser class for parsing OSM XML, and, in the separate libosmnet library, a
Client class for reading data from, and putting data to, OSM itself.
I've tried to keep dependencies to a minimum - for XML parsing I use the lightweight expat library, and for communication with the server, libcurl. Neither have secondary
This will form the first step, I hope, in an OSM to shapefile and OSM-to-IMG tool, as it would be good to remove the postgresql dependency on mapnik. I also hope (time permitting, which is a big if!) to work on a .img generation library.
Any desired features / bugs, please let me know. BTW I hope also to produce a Java version, probably using JOSM code as a base.
