The ssh library was designed to be used by programmers needing a working SSH
implementation by the mean of a library. The complete control of the client
is made by the programmer. With libssh, you can remotely execute programs,
transfer files, use a secure and transparent tunnel for your remote programs.
With its SFTP implementation, you can play with remote files easily.
