Environment tracking, help plz


I want to make an addon, and need some docs / hints.

Wanna track players in my 60-90 yrd environment both them friend and foe (also friendly player in duel situation). Also wanna track all what possible: their name, class, max life / actual life, mana / energy / rage (what they have), buffs on them, their actual target, actual casting action. Just collect info into a memory array.

This is the first time, i gonna make my own wow addon, and i am a bit newbie in this. Searching for something Event / API, what offers this ability, but nothing found (http://wowprogramming.com/docs however this site not offers really precise info).

For example Carbonite addon can alarm me, if an enemy player appears in range. Unfortunately that addon is *huge*. Explore info from that is about an "Impossible Mission".

Something tipp will be great. Thx.
