Two possible modes of Input/Output (I/O)are "sequential" and "random-access", and there is an extremely strong conceptual link between I/O and communication. Sequential communication, typified in the I/O setting by magnetic tape, is typified in the communication setting by a stream, e.g., a UNIX1 pipe. Random-access communication, typified in the I/O setting by a drum or disk device, is typified in the communication setting by shared memory. In this paper, we study and survey the extension of… CONTINUE READING
