 NAME    [Toc]    [Back]
      dlpi.h - data link provider interface standard header file

 SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

 DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]
      <dlpi.h> is the standard header file containing DLPI requests as
      prescribed by the DLPI 2.0 standard.  It contains the definitions for
      the primitives, acknowledgements and associated structures.

      The header file must be included by all DLS users (user-space and
      kernel-space) who intend to interact with LAN drivers through DLPI.

      The header file contains definitions for both connection-mode and
      connectionless service.

      The header file <dlpi_drv.h> provides definitions that are required by
      networking device drivers to interactvie with DLPI; see dlpi_drv(4).
      The header file <dlpi_ext.h> provides HP-specific extensions to DLPI
      2.0 standards; see dlpi_ext(4).  The manual page dlpi(7) provides an
      overview of HP-UX's DLPI.

 AUTHOR    [Toc]    [Back]
      <dlpi.h> was created by HP, based on DLPI 2.0 standard.
