    Summary: An interface for emulator and game ports
    Description: 
    For each emulator 'core', RetroArch makes use of a library API that we like
    to call 'libretro'.
    
    Think of libretro as an interface for emulator and game ports. You can make
    a libretro port once and expect the same code to run on all the platforms
    that RetroArch supports. It's designed with simplicity and ease of use in
    mind so that the porter can worry about the port at hand instead of having
    to wrestle with an obfuscatory API.
    
    The purpose of the project is to help ease the work of the emulator/game
    porter by giving him an API that allows him to target multiple platforms
    at once without having to redo any code. He doesn't have to worry about
    writing input/video/audio drivers - all of that is supplied to him by
    RetroArch. All he has to do is to have the emulator port hook into the
    libretro API and that's it - we take care of the rest.
