User-space character special file?
I'd like to write a linux program which creates a special file which behaves like a character special file: any data written to this special file is passed to my program, and data read from the special file is provided by my program. I know I could probably write a character device driver to do this, but I want to stay out of the kernel if possible. Any ideas?
Thanks in advance,
PS./ This probably isn't quite the right forum; if anyone knows some good linux programming forums, please share. Thanks.
