very high level library

gneSearchstring() which would return a n elemented array of integers, the integers being the aid#s of the
relevant articles.

gneGetTitleofAID() put in a aid#, get out a char.
gneGetSynopsisofAID() put in aid#, get out char ...
gneGetBodyofAID() ditto
gneGetAuthorofAID() "

that sort of thing.

and the naming (numbering) conventions:

c library version: 1.24

this means protocol version 1.2
(protocol upgrades only come along rarely, and dont need bugfixes in general)

c library version 4 for this protocol. (library implementations need bugfixes)

the 1 would only change when the api / protocol changed so drastically it made previous versions not work.

I'm still a bit confused as to the point of this api... are you saying
you want to standardise *all* commands used by the client (inc.
the ones that actually *fetch* the stuff, like select(....)) ?
Or will the api just be to standardise complicated things like
search queries, so kind of like putting the textsearch thing u found
into a standard GNE library/module made specifically for gne?
