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.
