    Summary: BIRD Internet Routing Daemon
    Description: 
    BIRD is an Internet Routing Daemon designed to support all the routing
    technology used in the today's Internet or planned to be used in near
    future and to have a clean extensible architecture allowing new routing
    protocols to be incorporated easily. Among other features, BIRD supports:
    
     * both IPv4 and IPv6 protocols
     * multiple routing tables
     * the Border Gateway Protocol (BGPv4)
     * the Routing Information Protocol (RIPv2)
     * the Open Shortest Path First protocol (OSPFv2)
     * a virtual protocol for exchange of routes between different routing
       tables on a single host
     * a command-line interface allowing on-line control and inspection of
       status of the daemon
     * soft reconfiguration (no need to use complex online commands to
       change the configuration, just edit the configuration file and notify
       BIRD to re-read it and it will smoothly switch itself to the new
       configuration, not disturbing routing protocols unless they are
       affected by the configuration changes)
     * a powerful language for route filtering
    
    BIRD has been developed at the Faculty of Math and Physics, Charles
    University, Prague, Czech Republic as a student project. It can be
    freely distributed under the terms of the GNU General Public License.
