nbworks is an implementation of NetBIOS, itself an incarnation of zeroconf networking. NetBIOS is an API that allows applications to find each other over a network and exchange information. nbworks consists of a deamon and a library. The daemon handles the peer discovery and parts of the serverside for information exchange. The library is linked into applications wishing to use NetBIOS and implements the rest of the NetBIOS functionality. The API that nbworks exports is meant to imitate the POSIX socket interface as closely as possible to enable easy usage by both experienced and novice programmers.
