       dlpi_drv.h  -  definitions of interfaces for device drivers to interact
       with DLPI

       The header file contains definitions of structures and function	proto‐
       types  that  are required by networking device drivers to interact with
       DLPI (data link provider interface).

       The header file contains interfaces that could be used by tightly  cou‐
       pled  and  loosely coupled drivers.  DLPI serves as a sole interface to
       DLS users for tightly coupled  drivers.	 Whereas,  a  loosely  coupled
       driver  depends	on  DLPI only to provide information to userspace com‐
       mands nwmgr(1M) and lanscan(1M) for display purposes.

       All loosely coupled and tightly coupled drivers must include this file.

       The manuals page dlpi(7) provides an overview  of  HP-UX's  DLPI.   The
       header  file contains DLPI requests; see dlpi(4).  The header file pro‐
       vides HP-specific extensions to DLPI 2.0 standards; see dlpi_ext(4).

       The interfaces provided in may change in the next HP-UX release.

       The and commands are deprecated.	 These commands will be removed	 in  a
       future  HP-UX  release.	 HP  recommends the use of replacement command
       nwmgr(1M) to perform all network interface-related tasks.

       was created by HP.
