###Overview

RadioHead consists of 2 main sets of classes: Drivers and Managers.

Drivers provide low level access to a range of different packet radios and other packetized message transports. Managers provide high level message sending and receiving facilities for a range of different requirements. Every RadioHead program will have an instance of a Driver to provide access to the data radio or transport, and a Manager that uses that driver to send and receive messages for the application. The programmer is required to instantiate a Driver and a Manager, and to initialise the Manager. Thereafter the facilities of the Manager can be used to send and receive messages.

It is also possible to use a Driver on its own, without a Manager, although this only allows unaddressed, unreliable transport via the Driver's facilities. In some specialised use cases, it is possible to instantiate more than one Driver and more than one Manager. A range of different common embedded microprocessor platforms are supported, allowing your project to run on your choice of processor. Example programs are included to show the main modes of use.
