Subpackage Descriptions
complete This is the libev-standard metapackage. It pulls in all subpackages of libev-standard.
primary A full-featured and high-performance event loop that is loosely modelled after libevent, but without its limitations and bugs. It is used in GNU Virtual Private Ethernet, rxvt-unicode, auditd, the Deliantra MORPG Server and Client, and many other programs. Features include child/pid watchers, periodic timers based on wallclock (absolute) time (in addition to timers using relative timeouts), as well as epoll/kqueue/event ports/inotify/eventfd/signalfd support, fast timer management, time jump detection and correction, and ease-of-use. It can be used as a libevent replacement using its emulation API or directly embedded into your programs without the need for complex configuration support. A full-featured and well-documented perl interface is also available.
dev This is the developer subpackage of the libev-standard port. It may contain headers, pc files, static and PIC libraries and SO links.
man This is the man page subpackage of the libev-standard port.
