+HawkNL is a free, open source, game oriented network API released under
+the GNU Library General Public License (LGPL). HawkNL (NL) is a fairly
+low level API, a wrapper over Berkeley/Unix Sockets and Winsock. But NL
+also provides other features including support for many OSs, groups of
+sockets, socket statistics, high accuracy timer, CRC functions, macros
+to read and write data to packets with endian conversion, and support
+for multiple network transports. NL has been tested on Windows
+9x/ME/NT/2000/XP/CE, Linux, Solaris, IRIX, AIX, BSDs, MacOS 7-9 and
+MacOS X. There are also the two high level APIs, HawkNLU(tm) (NLU)
+and HawkVoice(tm), which are built on top of NL. It is NLU and
+HawkVoice(tm) that are most exciting, since they give developers
+portable, easy to use alternatives to Microsoft®'s DirectPlay® and
+DirectPlay® Voice.
