Description : A Full-Featured Reliable-UDP Library for golang
KCP (golang-github-xtaci-kcp-dev) is a full-featured Reliable-UDP library
for golang. It provides reliable, ordered, and error-checked delivery of
a stream of octets between applications running on hosts communicating
over an IP network.
• Optimized for Online Games, Audio/Video Streaming.
• Compatible with skywind3000's (https://github.com/skywind3000)
C version with optimizations.
• Cache friendly and Memory optimized design in golang.
• Compatible with net.Conn (https://golang.org/pkg/net/#Conn)
and net.Listener (https://golang.org/pkg/net/#Listener).
• FEC (Forward Error Correction)
Support with Reed-Solomon Codes
• Packet level encryption support with AES, TEA, 3DES, Blowfish, Cast5,
Salsa20, in CFB mode. Conventions Control messages like SYN/FIN/RST
in TCP are not defined in KCP, you need some keepalive mechanims
in the application-level. A real world example is to use some
multiplexing protocol over session, such as
see kcptun (https://github.com/xtaci/kcptun) for example.
