Yes IOCTLS or something similar to that.
As an illustration iptables on Linux implemented in erlang !
Could you point out the url of the nice tutorial ?
For network device, I donot intend to use a socket !
What are the options available from an Erlang perspective ?
I am also keen to do a Erlang prototype for a Wireless USB device driver.
Like to hear about what the erlang community has thought about this !
In case I want to explore DMA in the erlang code, how do I do that ?
Thanks in advance for any pointers.
