This package contains the libraries necessary for a functioning DECnet
system. Most DECnet programs require these libraries to be present on
the system. The libraries are:
libdnet - the basic DECnet API as featured on Ultrix(R) systems
libdnet_daemon - useful calls for writing DECnet daemons
libdap - DAP (Data Access Protocol) C++ classes
librms - High level library for programmatic access VMS files
If you're looking for libdnet, the "dumb" networking library from
libdnet.sf.net by Dug Song then you should install libdumbnet instead.
Sorry for any confusion caused!
