minimalistic Netlink communication library

libmnl is a minimalistic user-space library oriented to Netlink developers. There are a lot of common tasks in parsing, validating, constructing of both the Netlink header and TLVs that are repetitive and easy to get wrong. This library aims to provide simple helpers that allows you to re-use code and to avoid re-inventing the wheel.

The main features of this library are:

Small: the shared library requires around 30KB for an x86-based computer.

Simple: this library avoids complexity and elaborated abstractions that tend to hide Netlink details.

Easy to use: the library simplifies the work for Netlink-wise developers. It provides functions to make socket handling, message building, validating, parsing and sequence tracking, easier.

Easy to re-use: you can use the library to build your own abstraction layer on top of this library.

Decoupling: the interdependency of the main bricks that compose the library is reduced, i.e. the library provides many helpers, but the programmer is not forced to use them.

This package contains the shared libraries needed to run programs that use the minimalistic Netlink communication library.
