Hi All,

I have been using linux container for some time as a user and now getting
interested to know how it is internally working, I started looking for
internals and could make that it is using cgroups under the hood.
The docs mention that it is using many other kernel pieces, I see the code
being implemented in C ( Ah I am not a C guy but am willing to play with
I wanted to know which system librarary is being used in c code that
invokes cgroup call, I looked at the code at

and see #include "cgroup.h" being included.
cgroup.c does not seem to contain the reference of
http://libcg.sourceforge.net/ library which I was expecting.
Can someone provide the high level code flow, I can take it from there.

Sorry if I am asking stupid question due to my ignorance of C understanding.
