 * libvdeplug - A library to connect to a VDE Switch.
 * dynamic loading version (requires libdl).

/* Use this include file when you need to write an application that can
 * benefit from vde when available. 
 * Linking libvdeplug to your programs you force your application users
 * to have the library installed (otherway the dynamic linker complies
 * and the program does not start).
 * usage:
 * define a struct vdepluglib variable;
 * eg:
 *         struct vdepluglib vdeplug;
 * test the availability of the library and load it:
 *         libvdeplug_dynopen(vdeplug);
 * if vdeplug.dl_handle is not NULL the library is ready otherwise it is
 * not available in the target system.
 * if libvdeplug does exist the library function can be called
 * in this way:
 *         libvde.vde_open(....)
 *         libvde.vde_read(....)
 *         libvde.vde_open(....)
 *         libvde.vde_recv(....)
 *         libvde.vde_send(....)
 *         libvde.vde_datafd(....)
 *         libvde.vde_ctlfd(....)
 *         libvde.vde_close(....)
 * libvdeplug_dynclose(vdeplug) can be used to deallocate the dynamic library
 * when needed.
