+libssh: the SSH library
1* Why ?
Why not ? :) I've began to work on my own implementation of the ssh protocol
because i didn't like the currently public ones.
-Not any allow you to import and use the functions as a library, and so i
-worked on a library-based SSH implementation.

2* How/Who ?
@@ -16,24 +17,12 @@ worked on a library-based SSH implementation.
If you downloaded this file, you must know what it is : a library for
accessing ssh client services through C libraries calls in a simple manner.
-The client is there as a programming example and isn't at all doing its job
-correctly (doesn't verify public key hashes with the ones in ~/.ssh/
-and doesn't handle TERM - yet)
Everybody can use this software under the terms of the LGPL - see the COPYING
-3* What ?
-The SSH library features :
--Full C library functions for manipulating a client-side SSH connection
--Fully configurable sessions
--Support for AES-128,AES-192,AES-256,blowfish, in cbc mode
--use multiple SSH connections in a same process, at same time.
--usable SFTP implementation
--Public key and password authentication
+If you ask yourself how to compile libssh, please read INSTALL before anything.
