# What is amq-protocol.
amq-protocol is an AMQP 0.9.1 serialization library for Ruby. It is not an
AMQP client: amq-protocol only handles serialization and deserialization.
If you want to write your own AMQP client, this gem can help you with that.
## How does amq-protocol relate to amqp gem, amq-client and libraries like bunny?
