Re: Sockets Layer Counter Proposal

This page is part of the web mail archives of SRFI 106 from before July 7th, 2015. The new archives for SRFI 106 contain all messages, not just those from before July 7th, 2015.

Sorry I sent the response individually by mistake, here the same comments.

The whole purpose of this SRFI is not supporting BSD style socket but providing commonly used procedures so that users can avoid to write own implementation dependent layers. And as far as I know, not all implementations support BSD style socket and it will be a lot of work to support it for them.

I think other SRFI can support BSD style socket interface and based on that this SRFI can be implemented.
