Thanks for the response, but I'm aware of that (in fact, ipf is one of my
reasons for moving to OpenBSD) and I'm aware of ipfstat (as I mentioned
above). However, I'm looking for a way to get that information directly from
my own program in C (e.g. something a la fopen()/fgets() + parsing or
whatever necessary), not for a standalone program.
