DragonFly kernel List (threaded) for 2003-11
Re: new library, libcaps
:I see that... I am not quite sure how to actually do anything with
Nothing, yet. Wait for me to move the primary service/client API
into the kernel. Then the only thing userland will need to mess
with is the abstracted LWKT messaging API.
:Its still interesting to look at the code and see what's going on but I
:write code that was purely [or as purely as possible] using lkkt_ calls
:Unix Domain Sockets and such in the way.
Yes, that is precisely the goal. libcaps uses unix domain sockets
for the messaging pipe but those are fairly cumbersome. I am as we
speak creating a general set of system calls to implement a generalized
LWKT messaging system that userland can use both in single-threaded
environments and in multi-threaded environments.
:I wanted to make some simple examples that explain how this stuff can be
:immediately used in user space and possibly even do some kind of a
:walkthrough of this stuff.
I think it will be possible to construct some very simple examples once
I get the guts of the API into the kernel.
