Talk Title Porting STREAMS Driver to Linux.
Track Development
Scope Technical
Synopsis STREAMS is a framework for developing network driver and protocol stracks. On many OS\'s (SVR4, HP-UX, Solaris) STREAMS is the first choice for writing network drivers. Unlike other OSs Linux doesn\'t support STREAMS in the mainline kernel.

But there is port of SVR4 STREAMS, which is available on Linux called Linux STREAMS (LiS). (

We had done a project involving porting of STREAMS drivers to Linux using LiS.

This presentation will talk about the choice available for porting
a STREAMS driver to Linux, which are namely

- convert it to a char driver.
- convert to Network driver.
- Use LiS.

We have tried to compare these options and share our experience with LiS.
