       use RRDp

       RRDp::start path to rrdtool executable

       RRDp::cmd  rrdtool commandline

       $answer = RRD::read

       $status = RRD::end

       $RRDp::user,  $RRDp::sys, $RRDp::real


       With this module you can safely communicate with the rrd­

       After every RRDp::cmd you have to issue an RRDp::read com­
       mand to get rrdtools answer to your command. The answer is
       returned as a pointer, in order to speed things up. If the
       last command did not return any data, RRDp::read will
       return an undefined variable.

       If you import the PERFORMANCE variables into your names­
       pace, you can access rrdtools internal performance mea­

       use RRDp
               Load the RRDp::pipe module.

       RRDp::start path to rrdtool executable
               start rrdtool. The argument must be the path to
               the rrdtool executable

       RRDp::cmd rrdtool commandline
               pass commands on to rrdtool. check the rrdtool
               documentation for more info on the rrdtool com­

       $answer = RRDp::read
               read rrdtools response to your command. Note that
               the $answer variable will only contain a pointer
               to the returned data. The reason for this is, that
               rrdtool can potentially return quite excessive
               amounts of data and we don't want to copy this
               around in memory. So when you want to access the
               contents of $answer you have to use $$answer which
               dereferences the variable.

       $status = RRDp::end
               terminates rrdtool and returns rrdtools status ...

        use RRDp;
        RRDp::start "/usr/local/bin/rrdtool";
        RRDp::cmd   qw(create demo.rrd --step 100
        $answer = RRDp::read;
        print $$answer;
        ($usertime,$systemtime,$realtime) =  ($RRDp::user,$RRDp::sys,$RRDp::real);
