Interfacing UNIX to Data Communications Networks
October 1985 (vol. 11 no. 10)
pp. 1016-1032
F. Panzieri, Suma-Sistemi vomo Macchina
We propose an interface for use from within UNIX1 user programs for communicating over multiple and varied local and wide area networks. This interface aids the design of a distributed application program by hiding the actual communications protocols used over each network, and providing instead simple primitives for sending and receiving (possibly large) datagrams, using a simple standardized network addressing scheme based on a pair.
Index Terms:
UNIX, Datagram, network protocols, networks, Newcastle Connection
