Thank you for your suggestion. My problem is lack of C++ or even C
libraries. The embedded OS I chosen is NuttX, just provide basic POSIX
thread and socket library, no C++ libraries. If I want a full roscpp to run,
I have to port some libraries you mentioned to NuttX. So I prefer a light
weight pure C or no C++ library using ROS client. Do you know some already
published work about this?
