I am stuck. Here is the situation: When the SIMPLE protocol is sent a
close message (via simple_close), I need to unregister from the server.
This would be easy (and is currently implemented) except that the server
may send back a message and ask for that unregistration to be
Currently in libpurple it looks like prpl_info->close() gets called and
the disconnection process continues merrily along assuming that nothing
else needs to be done (I am reading that from connection.c:253).
Ideally for SIMPLE, the close process would be two fold. First I would
get called with a start_close(). libpurple would wait for me to say
"continue closing" which I would do after I have sent my unregistration
message to the server and received a good response. Second I would get a
finish_close() that would operate similar to purple_connection_destroy
in that everything continues merrily along and all resources are
I have looked through other protocol code to see if such an overloading
of the disconnection process is possible. However, I haven't been able
to figure out how to do it. I don't want to bastardize the api too much
in order to accomplish this. So, I am asking for your help!
What would be the best way to go about this? Am I missing something
Thanks in advance for your feedback!
