The Package Bindings (or Pkg Bindings) library is a small layer between the package management library (Libzypp) and YaST YCP interpreter. The task is to convert types between libypp (C++) and YCP interpreter (YCP data types) and to hide implementation details of the package management and provide simple and easy to use API.

The Pkg Bindings are located in yast2-pkg-bindings RPM package.
