     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.
