This is "portable" on most Unix-like OSes, yes. In fact, this is exactly how Synchronet supports x/y/zmodem transfers using stdio protocol drivers (like lsz/rz) on Unix-like OSes. On Windows, a protocol driver is expected to support socket I/O directly (not via stdio stream) and accept an inheritable socket descriptor (e.g. via command-line argument) on which to send and receive data.„-- „ digital man (rob)„„Rush quote #51:„Suddenly you were gone from all the lives you left your mark upon„Norco, CA WX: 89.7ÝF, 30.0% humidity, 7 mph S wind, 0.00 inches rain/24hrs„---„ Ģ Synchronet Ģ Vertrauen Ģ Home of Synchronet Ģ [vert/cvs/bbs].synchro.net„
