|Hidejournal friends only...

I compiled the rather funky HideJournal into a native exe for windows. ( http://rdc.untamed.co.uk/HideJournal/hidejournal.htm )
The program wasn't written by me, and was written before LJ started using tags. So now when it's converting everything to friends-only it's stripping out the tags of peoples posts.
I want to attempt to add the bits of code in to it to retain all the tags. The problem was, I visited http://www.livejournal.com/developer/protocol.bml to find out how to use the protocol interface, and was then pointed towards http://www.livejournal.com/developer/modelist.bml for the details.
Um, there are no details!
Could someone nice please point me towards documentation for loading, editing and saving posts, which is updated to include tags?
(Please give it a digg or two)
I read this communities information, and found a link : ttp://www.livejournal.com/doc/server/ljp.csp.protocol.html yay!... now to work on the Tag code... I wish they weren't variable lenths.
Right. Unfortunately, Hidejournal will have to send the full property list due to that issue with tags for now.
Right now, personally, using the flat interface, I don't even bother parsing the property string. I just store and send the whole string that LJ gives me.
No, there isn't... When I get a post, I just collect every single property you get back. I concatenate them in one giant string containing all "prop_name=value" items. I send this back later when I do a postevent. Yeah, the way I worded how I do this is strange.
Didn't know that you could send the tags only, though. That's helpful to know.
Can you look at my next post?
I'm learning how the program works, so I keep tweaking and running it - but the LJ servers don't like that!
There's not even a command to logout - to close a session!
I'll do this if you still need things figured out, but it looks like you were able to get it working. :)
I did, thanks! Everyone here was very helpful.
