Subject: /dev/fd -> /proc/self/fd
Date: Thu, 6 Mar 1997 21:02:32 -0500 [thread overview]
Message-ID: <199703070202.VAA24056@explorer2.clark.net> (raw)
I seem to have lost the message that someone recently sent about doing
this, can someone give me a clue? Someone who saved the message?
Someone who has done it? Whoever sent the original message? I swear
I'm not hallucinating, although maybe it was on a different mailing
list or news group...
Failing that, what is the behaviour of /dev/fd? Is it a directory
that "magically" contains numeric filenames corresponding to the
reading processes open fd's like /proc/self/fd? Somebody had to
understand this to implement the original code. ;-)
BTW - Chris, where are the mailing list archives these days?
