dlpi.h — data link provider interface standard header file




<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.


<dlpi.h> was created by HP, based on DLPI 2.0 standard.


dlpi_drv(4), dlpi_ext(4), dlpi(7), lan(7).
