Hooks under Linux?
I hope this is the right forum for my question :).
In Microsoft Windows there is a thing called hooks. With hooks you can filter messages and events which are appointed to another process. So you can monitor all message traffic in the system.
Is there are similar thing to these hooks in linux? I would be gladfull for any informations :).
In Eric Raymond's book on UNIX programming there is a lot
of information on inter-process communication.
Basics of the Unix Philosophy
I don't know if there is anything closely resembling hooks though.
