Nmap as a library

Dear list readers and nmap developers,

I have been toying around with the idea of using nmap for managing new assets on my network or getting data of newly 
created hosts. 

Now, I'm a perl programmer and would like to do tgis from within perl. But doing execs and parsing output (even though 
it is xml) is rather difficult and prone to fail once a version change has happend and the output has changed from one 
space to 2 or voce versa or otherwise. 

Perl has a nice way of including c or c++ application libraries. They link against them using XS or SWIG. 

Would it be possible to make a library out of nmap with only the nmap binary as a wrapping console application around 

Mit freundlichen Grüßen / Kind regards,

Andreas Marschke.
