    The Rapid Spanning Tree Library project contains a full implementation
    of IEEE 802.1w as an library with API. There is two processes, using this
    library: 'bridge' & 'mngr'. First simulates RSTP bridge behavior, second
    is dedicated to link/unlink 'bridges' into virtual RSTP domain (VRSTPD).
    Both 'bridge' & 'mngr' has its own simple CLI like language of commands;
    these commands allow to manage the VRSTPD. There are tools to trace
    state machine transitions and get traps about drastic changes.

    Purpose: studying, debugging, development.

    The library may be used in real bridges/routers while bounding to a real system depending environment.
