Hello All,

The attached patch (to trunk rev148659) is a port from the MELT branch
(which did test it quite significantly for the added features.).

The insight is that some plugins might want or need to pretty print (notably
for debugging purpose) outside of a FILE*. Using fmemopen is not portable

"Might want or need".


I don't see a reason for pushing in things that are incomplete and
are not needed now.

And fmemopen is good enough - plugin hosts are already restricted
anyway.


AFAIK, Solaris does not have fmemopen, but have a working dlopen.

However, I can do with fmemopen.

Regards.
