I've been lurking on this list for a while now and haven't seen any
discussion on SDL tools.
Well, I not actually interested in talking about the tool itself, but rather
how people use these tools.
Let me give you an example.
I use Telelogic's tools (TAU) to design telecom applications.
It's (Telelogic's) C code generator implements the application.
Those applications are compiled and run on UNIX boxes.
Whenever I need to access a database server, I use interprocess
communications protocols to send messages to another UNIX process which in
turn uses the database API.
Just because I don't want my "SDL" app to block on a function call while
waiting for the database server.
So, I was wondering. How does anybody else do the same thing ?
How about shrinking this "middleware" into a thread ?
Wouldn't it be better ?
Can you see the kind of conversations I would like to have ?
Is this an appropriate forum for this ?
Can I start this kind of discussions here?
Does anybody knows a better forum for this?
Any mailing lists or newsgroups ?

Please, don't take me wrong. I find people here very helpful. I just don't
want to bother you with things that aren't of your interest.
