    Summary: BIRD Internet Routing Daemon
    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.
