The protocol specified in this document is designed to provide
multicast and broadcast functionality in mobile ad hoc networks. It
utilizes the Route Discovery mechanism defined by the Dynamic Source
Routing protocol (DSR) [4, 5, 7] to flood the data packets through
the network. Although this protocol is derived from DSR, it can be
implemented as a stand-alone protocol. In fact, it does not rely
on unicast routing to operate. If DSR is already implemented on
the network, very minor modifications are required to enable this

NOTE: The mail server at ietf.org can return the document in
MIME-encoded form by using the "mpack" utility. To use this
feature, insert the command "ENCODING mime" before the "FILE"
command. To decode the response(s), you will need "munpack" or
a MIME-compliant mail reader. Different MIME-compliant mail readers
exhibit different behavior, especially when dealing with
"multipart" MIME messages (i.e. documents which have been split
up into multiple messages), so check your local documentation on
how to manipulate these messages.
Below is the data which will enable a MIME compliant mail reader
implementation to automatically retrieve the ASCII version of the
