[vz-dev] RFC: new config format for vzlogger

Hi there,

the current format for vzlogger.conf has all information for a channel in a separate line, like this:

;prot middleware uuid connection intval options
onewire http://demo.volkszaehler.org/middleware.php <uuid> /mnt/1wire/10.12E6D3000800/temperature 10
d0 http://volkszaehler.org/demo/middleware.php <uuid> /dev/ttyUSB2 1-0:1.7.0*ff
sml http://localhost/volkszaehler.org/middleware <uuid> <host>:<port> power

The format is not exactly easy to read and it does not allow a intuitive configuration for multiple channels per sensor (e.g. for several phases of one meter).

Steffen has therefore tried to find a more suitable format, you can find it here [0].

What do you think? Any ideas?

Regards, J.
