VERSION

The version installed on this system is 5.38.0.

IMPORTANT

Manpages do not contain a lot of information. Rather read netwib-5.38.0-doc_html.tgz.

PRESENTATION

Netwib is a network library providing :
- network features :
+ address conversion
+ udp/tcp clients/servers
+ packet encoding/decoding/displaying
+ spoofing
+ sniffing
+ etc.
- and general features :
+ data conversion
+ chained list, hash
+ portable threads
+ etc. Using all these functions, a network program can be quickly created.

Netwib is available under the GNU GPL license. It was successfully installed under Linux, Windows, FreeBSD, NetBSD, OpenBSD, MacOS, Solaris and HP-UX.

This library has two main drawbacks:
- In order to provide new features, functions prototypes may vary
between versions. So, a program created with version 5.1.0 might not
compile with version 5.5.0. To move around this problem, several
versions of netwib can be simultaneously installed on the same
system.
- Netwib’s features correspond to least common denominator of functions
available on systems. This ensures a program compiled under one
system will also compile on another. However, this design choice does
not permit advanced features. So, netwib is not suitable for long term projects. It is for small projects or quick hacks.

COMPILATION

To compile a program with netwib :
- add "#include <netwib.h>" at the top of your C file
- compile with :
gcc -o file file.c ‘netwib-config --cflags --libs‘
gcc -o file file.c ‘netwib-config -cl‘
