I have just added Sockets library with local (aka UNIX) sockets support to SVN sandbox. The code was extracted from Net library and slightly modified to accommodate for UNIX sockets. For the time being, tested only on Linux. I’ll do Solaris testing as well, whoever can run it on other platforms, please do and report back any modifications. As for the final destiny of this code, the jury (aka Günter) is still out, but the idea behind this madness is to provide a contribution to IPC and IO efforts. Comments welcome.
