How can I list all topics or services that are currently known by the server with roscpp?

Maybe sth like rostopic list && rosservice list | grep *roscpp*? I'm not sure about the exact syntax from my mind.

Thx. With roscpp I mean using a C++ function.

You can use the services of the omnipresent rosapi node, these are equivalent to the command line statements:

rosservice call rosapi/topics rosservice call rosapi/services


ros::ServiceClient topicfinder = n.serviceClient<rosapi::Topics>("rosapi/topics");
ros::ServiceClient servicesfinder = n.serviceClient<rosapi::Services>("rosapi/services");

rosapi::Topics topicsrv;
rosapi::Services servicessrv;;;


from rosapi.srv import Topics, Services

topics = rospy.ServiceProxy('/rosapi/topics', Topics)
services = rospy.ServiceProxy('/rosapi/services', Services)
topiclist = topics()
servicelist = services()

I've probably got some typos and mistakes in here, but that's the general gist.

It's much easier using the Master_API: ros::master::V_TopicInfo topics; ros::master::getTopics(topics). But anyway, nice answer.

This gives me rospy.service.ServiceException: service [/rosapi/services] unavailable
