Three years ago Michael Adam created a nice library to easily read the Samba configuration or modify it if it is stored in the registry. Since we have a new build system it is much easier to create shared libraries, I’ve created a public smbconf library now. The library can be used to setup Samba or Winbind without touching any files. Ok, smb.conf needs one entry: config backend = registry. This library should be available with Samba 3.6 which will be released some time this year.

You can find the documentation for the new library here.
