Hmm, simple commands really, i.e. packets with the proper text in them. I
suppose I will make a small textbased app as a sample to demonstrate how
it works, but in the long run a good centralized management 'console'
would be good to have. WWW-based stuff can be made via a CGI-script
(running C++ apps) if desired.

The normal GNU regexp package. Should be part of normal (g)libc. See
manpages for regcomp, regexec, regerror and regfree. I've wrapped a class
around the C-interface and use it in several locations.

To some extent. But part of the docs is not even yet written. The parts
realted to configuration, compilation, installation and running Zombie
should be ok, as well as the one on programming. I write more docs every
now and then, when I find time.
