Build a C SDK / Access Layer



Am building an application that needs to access OpenIO object storage. The application sits on top of a mail server and is all written in C. Am looking to build an SDK/Access layer to OpenIO in C.

I read about the Python SDK. I could use a python binding to integrate it into my C code but I prefer if everything is native. Is there a document I can find that talks about a pure REST interface to the object storage or a C library to access the object storage ?

Thank you!
