#777 assigned enhancement

unix-sockets: implement FD sending and receiving

Reported by: Moritz Heidkamp Owned by: felix winkelmann
Priority: not urgent at all Milestone:
Component: extensions Version: 4.7.x
Keywords: unix-sockets Cc:
Estimated difficulty: easy

Description

Unix domain sockets allow sending and receiving FDs through them. It would be nice to add this functionality to the unix-sockets egg. Ruby has a pretty convenient implementation of this, maybe it could be used as a reference. See http://apidock.com/ruby/UNIXSocket/send_io and http://apidock.com/ruby/UNIXSocket/recv_iop.
