libnet provides a portable framework for low-level network packet
writing and handling.
libnet features portable packet creation interfaces at the IP layer
and link layer, as well as a host of supplementary functionality.
Using libnet, quick and simple packet assembly applications can be
whipped up with little effort. With a bit more time, more complex
programs can be written (Traceroute and ping were easily rewritten
using libnet and libpcap).
This package contains the files needed to compile and link programs
that use libnet.
