Manage ASN1 (Abstract Syntax Notation One) structures.
The main features of this library are:
* on-line ASN1 structure management that doesn't require any C code
file generation.
* off-line ASN1 structure management with C code file generation
containing an array.
* DER (Distinguish Encoding Rules) encoding
* no limits for INTEGER and ENUMERATED values
This package contains programs to encode, decode and parse asn1 data
