    I would be pleased to be able to execute the recutils
    functionalities (recind, recsel..) from within a C executable, but
    without forking via the system() command. I didn't go deeply into
    the librec code and features, may be this exists already? If yes, is
    it documented, and if not, could you consider doing something alike?
librec does not provide the functionalities implemented by the rec*
utilities.  Instead, it provides general functions.

For example, it provides functions to iterate on records in a record set
and to apply a selection expression to the records.  It is quite easy to
use the librec functionality to build your own recutil.  Take a look to
the code in utils/.
