Summary: Include files and API documentation for the Linux Registry
The Linux Registry is an alternative back-end for text configuration files.

Instead of each program to have its own text configuration files, the Registry tries to provide a universal, fast, consistent, robust, thread-safe and transactional infrastructure to store configuration parameters through a key-value pair mechanism.

This way any software can read/save his configuration using a consistent API. Also, applications can be aware of other applications configurations, leveraging easy application integration.

This package contains the include files and API manual pages to use the Registry API in C.
