"John F. Woods" sez:
* The trouble is that applications which want to be that tricky will probably
* have finicky enough (and different enough) requirements that one interface
* won't be useful to a majority of such applications. The proper answer, of
* course, is generally "if you're so smart, do your OWN d*mned buffering!"
* (i.e., drop back to read() and write())
Of course, and that's truly the proper answer. I ended up doing just
such a thing because fread and fwrite didn't act the way I wanted them
to. How many hack^H^H^H^Hprogrammers out there have written their own
bread(), bwrite() and bseek() routines? Or, to reduce the numbers of
hands shown, how many _haven't_ done so?
