The rtnetlink package

[ Tags: bsd3, library, network, system ] [ Propose Tags ]

A high-level, extensible, pure Haskell interface to the ROUTE_NETLINK subsystem of netlink for manipulating network devices on Linux. RTNetlink provides the RTNL monad to simplify sending and receiving messages, pre-built types for manipulating devices and addresses, and typeclasses for creating your own messages, based on linux/netlink.h, linux/rtnetlink.h, et al.
