    Program Example

    written in coffeescript.
    This is just indicative program to demonstrate functionality . It cannot run as it is.

        ovs = require('ovsdriver')
        ovs.createBridge "sw1", (result) =>
            util.log "Bridge creation " + result                               
        ovs.addInterface "sw1", "veth1",(result) =>
            util.log "AddInterface result", result

    This driver is used in Kaanalnet application to manage ovs, https://github.com/sureshkvl/kaanalnet/blob/master/src/builder/switchCtrl.coffee
