Hi all,

Correct me if i am wrong, but Linux doesn't have any STREAMS devices or drivers as of now. But as Ritchie's paper explains, they are flexible and can find use in a lot of places where piplelined processing is involved - net drivers for instance. Anything being done/planned in that direction?
