writing a wire protocol module

2005 February 28

This has floated to the top of my list, so I'm going to be working on this in the near future.

I'm going to start by getting SSSlib up on my desktop, and then I'm going to create a dummy component that only receives and sends messages. The received messages it dumps to an output file, and perhaps it sends messages on a periodic basis generated by a script, or something. This will give me a test bench to test communication when I develop SSSlib-style communication code for real components. It also means that I will have debugged the low-level communication stuff before I try to do integration tests with anyone.

The first step is to get SSSlib installed.

As I work on the wire protocol module, Narayan asked me to document the process. I will do that on this page.
