Sort of.
See RFC 1905, section 3 for the definition of the VarBind structure.

RFC 1905 is the document that describes SNMPv2
(though the lowest level of encoding a request into the
packet that's actually sent over the network follows the
Basic Encoding Rules, which is an ISO standard).

See snmplib - especially snmp_api.c and asn1.c

But I would suggest that this probably isn't the best way
to learn about SNMP. You would be much better off buying
a good book and studying that.
