BUFLD(4) BUFLD(4) NAME buf_ld - buffering line discipline DESCRIPTION This stream module treasures up data for a while, then emits it in a burst. It is otherwise transparent. It intends to reduce overhead of programs such as cu(1) and uucp(1) that read input from moderate-speed lines in raw or cbreak mode. It saves characters until 16 are accumulated or 1/20 sec has passed without seeing a character. SEE ALSO stream(4) BUGS One supposes that the parameters should be settable.
