following the mailing list discussions, it seems to me the
major issue in building ST-enabled applications
is still the handling of non ST-controlled operations,
like performing disk I/O, query LDAP servers and/or DBMS,
legacy network libraries, questions like these.
The standard way to handle this issues is to build
some "helper" application, connected to the ST-enabled one
via some IPC mechanism like pipe(2) or socketpair(2), but
unfortunately the suggested sample (quoting from a past discussion):
>The Flash web server used disk I/O helpers for disk-bound workloads
><http://www.cs.rice.edu/~vivek/flash99/>. I think the source code is
>available free of charge for non-commerial use.
Is no longer available (at least, the author neither answers
emails, nor releases the code).
May I ask someone to provide a working sample of such a technique ???
For example, in the ST distribution there is the "server" sample:
it should be nice to extend this sample with an "helper" app, given
Any help/remark will be highly appreciated.
Thanks for your patience, and best regards.
