libxen-dev - Public headers and libs for Xen

This package contains the public headers and static libraries for Xen.
The libxenlight library is intended as a common base for all Xen toolstack developers. The libxlutil library contains additional helpers which may be useful to toolstack developers.
The libxenstore library allows userspace processes to interact with the XenStore database. XenStore is a shared database used for interdomain communication of configuration and status information. It is accessible to all domains running on the same Xen host. See
http://wiki.xen.org/wiki/XenStore for more information.
The libxenctrl and libxenguest libraries are internal libraries intended for use by the Xen toolstack and are not intended to be used directly. Toolstack authors should use libxenlight.
