libsyd - syd API Rust Library

libsyd is a C library written in Rust that implements the syd stat API, providing an interface to the /dev/syd of syd. It allows for runtime configuration and interaction with the syd sandboxing environment.


The library is designed to interact with the syd sandboxing environment, offering functionalities to check and modify the state of the sandbox lock, and perform system calls to /dev/syd.


This library is a work in progress, and the API is not stable.

For more detailed information and usage instructions, refer to the syd manual, available at syd Manual.
