Detailed Description

The low-level public API of the D-Bus library.

libdbus provides a low-level C API intended primarily for use by bindings to specific object systems and languages. D-Bus is most convenient when used with the GLib bindings, Python bindings, Qt bindings, Mono bindings, and so forth. This low-level API has a lot of complexity useful only for bindings.
