  Description     : Userland implementation of the SCTP protocol (RFC 2960)

The sctplib library is a fairly complete prototype implementation of the
Stream Control Transmission Protocol (SCTP), a message-oriented reliable
transport protocol that supports multi-homing, and multiple message streams
multiplexed within an SCTP connection (also named association). SCTP is
described in RFC 2960, RFC 3309 and RFC 3286. This implementation is the
product of a cooperation between Siemens AG (ICN), Munich, Germany and the
Computer Networking Technology Group at the IEM of the University of Essen,
Germany. See http://www.sctp.de/ for details.
The API of the library was modeled after section 10 of RFC 2960, and most
parameters and functions should be self-explanatory to the user familiar with
this document. In addition to these interface functions between an Upper
Layer Protocol (ULP) and an SCTP instance, the library also provides a number
of helper functions that can be used to manage callback function routines to
make them execute at a certain point of time (i.e. timer-based) or open and
bind  UDP sockets on a configurable port, which may then be used for an
asynchronous interprocess communication.
