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 shared library.
