I could be wrong but that's my memory. What
he told me was streams was
for line disciplines for tty drivers.
Rob - this syncs with what Dennis I had talked about too *i.e.* Using
streams for the serial interface; as the line disciplines stuff was a mess
by that point. I cannt say I remember talking to him about using streams
If my memory is right, I would have talked to Dennis about it around
1987 or early 1988. Is it possible that was before they did networking
Maybe I have the dates wrong but my guess is I talked to him about it
before the networking stuff was done in research Unix. So his view
may have evolved.
