There are no documents or templates on writing output plugins,  
however you can follow the preprocessor template (spp_template.c) in  
the templates directory for general guidance and then look at one of  
the simpler output plugins like spo_log_null.c (95 lines of code, the  
first 38 of which are comments) for a basic look at how output  
plugins go together.
