Subject: doors in linux (a bit OT)
Date: Wed, 7 Feb 2007 15:35:17 +0200	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <d0383f90702070535q3a26ff41t85daef531f13256e@mail.gmail.com> (raw)

Hello,
 I saw that there is a project in sf.net called Linux Doors.
 (nikitadanilov)

see http://sourceforge.net/projects/ldoor/
It is from 2001.

The doors in a lightweight and fast IPC mechanism.
It seems to me better (and maybe simpler?) than Unix local sockets or others
podix IPC  (maybe I am wrong) in terms of overhead.

My question is : It seems that the
implementation of doors is not very complex in Open Solaris
Is there a reason that the doors mechanism was not
adopted by the linux kernel?

Regards,
Ian
