Actually that program is good for running one time.

You replace the snippet in the run_test of gateway_test to make it
more interactive.

    while(1) {

    printf("Enter a string: ");

    // Do a first put.

        put_args.key[first] = first % 9;
    //random_key (put_args.key, sizeof (put_args.key));
    //printf("%s %d",put_args.key,sizeof(put_args.key));
    put_args.value.bamboo_value_val = value_val1;
    put_args.value.bamboo_value_len = sizeof (value_val1);
    do_put (clnt, &put_args);

    // Check that the data's there.

    memcpy (get_args.key, put_args.key, sizeof (get_args.key));

    while( 1 ) {
    get_result = do_get (clnt, &get_args);

    if (get_result->values.values_len <= 0) {
        printf ("Get failed: returned %d

    printf("Values Length: %d\n",get_result->values.values_len);

    for(first=0;first<get_result->values.values_len; first++) {

    if( get_result->placemark.bamboo_placemark_len == 0 )

    get_args.placemark.bamboo_placemark_val =
    get_args.placemark.bamboo_placemark_len =
