Stealing TclX's [pipe] as [chan pipe]. Only changes: (1) naming more in line with surrounding style, and (2) creation of a true list instead of a string (robustness against spaces in channel names).

Logged In: YES user_id=72656 Originator: NO _I_ would be, which is to say I'm comfortable with Tcl_CreatePipe being the correct, formal, public API that we expect users to use. This might be worth running by tcl-core though.

Logged In: YES user_id=496139 Originator: YES So if I rename it, and hence we get side-by-side TclpCreatePipe (returning two TclFile's) and Tcl_CreatePipe (returning two Tcl_Channel's), you're happy ?

Logged In: YES user_id=72656 Originator: NO If we are never going to promote TclpCreatePipe, then I don't think we should hamper the long term API with a lesser name (Tcl_StandalonePipe). This about the now, as well as the later.

File Deleted - 281049: File Added - 281060: chanpipe3.patch Logged In: YES user_id=496139 Originator: YES OK for the flags. New impl attached. For the name, I prefer to stay visually far from the existing TclpCreatePipe, which has similar semantics but uses a different type for channel encapsulation. More generally, the whole code is sprinkled with the confusion between a "pipe" and a "pipeline" (which is made of several children processes and pipes), and I think the word "standalone" helps keep things clear ;-) File Added: chanpipe3.patch

Logged In: YES user_id=72656 Originator: NO I would strongly urge a flags arg to Tcl_StandalonePipe (and is there a better name for that ... like Tcl_CreatePipe?). It may not be used immediately, but it will improve the chances that anything forgotten is easier to slot in. I'm having this issue now with shoe-horning inet6 in to old APIs that really should use flags.

File Added - 281049: chanpipe2.patch Logged In: YES user_id=496139 Originator: YES Attached the improved implementation: - public API (stub slot 580 in tcl) - clearer signature (two explicit channel args instead of an array) - test suite - doc (chan.n) File Added: chanpipe2.patch
