    3 Wrappers (wrapper, vboxwrapper, wrappture) use the following
    4 API to control the behavior of the BOINC runtime system.
     3Wrappers (wrapper, vboxwrapper, wrappture) perform the functions
     4normally done by the BOINC runtime system,
     5such as handling suspend/resume messages from the client.
     6For example, vboxwrapper handles suspend messages by telling the !VirtualBox
     7hypervisor to suspend the VM.

     9Developing a wrapper involves:

     11 * Setting initialization options telling the BOINC runtime system
     12   what functions it should perform
     13   (i.e. those not performed by the wrapper).
     14 * Periodically calling [StatusApi#Gettingruntimesystemstatus boinc_get_status()]
     15   to see when something (e.g. suspend/resume) needs to be done.
