Nice idea but those functions aren't exported.. in fact they're defined 
within a c++ anonymous namespace so they're not even called that.. 
they'll have some mangled name internally (not sure why at some point 
they got 'audit' stuck in their name).

To call it you need to go via the api (CLibraryAccess) or you can do it 
manually starting with get_plugin_interface in audit.dll - something like:

plugin_interface *p = get_plugin_interface();
trigger_interface *t = p->get_interface(p, pitTrigger, NULL);

Then you call as before:

t->init(NULL, "commit", "2000-11-01 10:42:15", "localhost", "fred", 
"/cvsrepo", "d:\cvsrepo", "000001234", NULL, 0, NULL, NULL, '2.5.04', NULL);
t->pretag(NULL, "", "/module/directory", 2, {"file1.txt","file2.txt"}, 
{"1.2","1.3"}, 'T', "", "Rel_1_2_0");

And to close down:


As that's entirely a C interface it should be possible to reproduce in 

Cross platform note.. get_plugin_interface may be renamed by libtool, 
since on some platforms (eg. HPUX) you can't export functions with the 
same name from two different ibraries.  This won't be an issue provided 
you use the libtool functions to find the name.
