Install socket listener

Like the both homeradar products, libhomeradar can also create a socket on which you can connect to read all received messages. The output is in our own special (; separated format). You can also select the normal SBS-1 style output format.

Listener function description:

/* Install or disable listener for socket output dump
   Set second parameter to FALSE if you wish to disable the listener.
   If the second parameter is TRUE, port and hostname must also be set 
   Use the LHR_ON / LHR_OFF macro for the onoff parameter.
   Add LHR_SBS1COMP to output contacts in SBS1 compatible format
int homeradar_listener(LHR handle, const int onoff, const int port, const char *host);

To install your listener on port 8000 of your localhost and the output should be in the SBS-1 standard, you should call:
int r = homeradar_listener(H, LHR_ON|LHR_SBS1COMP, 8000, localhost);
This functions returns TRUE if the listener could be installed and should be working. FALSE if the listener could not be installed or there is already a listener running.

You cannot install more then one listener on one LHR handle.
The listener will be started in a separate thread.
