Description: DECnet Libraries
 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
                  from Linux.
 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!
