Subject sendfilev() on Solaris
Date Thu, 19 Jul 2001 22:57:28 GMT


In upcoming versions of Solaris 8, Sun has introduced a function called
sendfilev(). This might be handy for APR to use on these systems.

While I have installed the necessary patches to add it (sendfilev() comes
in a new library, /usr/lib/libsendfile.so.1,) I cannot seem to find a man
page on it, so I guess info must be gleaned from <sys/sendfile.h>.

NSPR seems to have implemented it, though. Take a look at Wan-Teh's patch
at:
	http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=64471

For those with Solaris 8 boxen that might want to play with this, you'll
need the following (sparc) patches:

111297-01	SunOS 5.8: /usr/lib/libsendfile.so.1 patch
111295-01	SunOS 5.8: /usr/bin/sparcv7/pstack &
		/usr/bin/sparcv9/pstack patch
109025-03	SunOS 5.8: /usr/bin/sparcv7/truss and
		/usr/bin/sparcv9/truss patch
108995-02	SunOS 5.8: /usr/lib/libproc.so.1 patch
108528-09	SunOS 5.8: kernel update patch
