axl_bool vortex_listener_parse_conf_and_start ( void   ) 

Support function for Vortex Library listeners, that reads a xml file that contains listener information and starts the listener.

The file the function will try to find is conf.xml. It will lookup for all paths configured through:

Here is an example for a configuration file:

 <vortex-listener>
   <listener>
     <hostname>0.0.0.0</hostname>
     <port>44000</port>
   </listener>
 </vortex-listener>

If the function returns axl_false, a call to vortex_exit is not required because it is already done by this function.

Returns:
axl_true if the listener was started because the file was read successfully otherwise axl_false is returned.
