Functor Lpd.Make


module Make: 
functor (C : CONFIG) -> sig .. end
Make a Line Printer daemon according to the configuration C.

The functions are splitted to offer various points where threads can be launched.
Raises Failure if one if the queue names contains a space.
Parameters:
C : CONFIG


val socket : ?port:int -> unit -> Unix.file_descr
socket ?port () creates a socket for the LPD daemon.
port : allows to specify on which port the socket listens. By default it is the standard port for LPD i.e. 515.
val accept : ?thread:((unit -> unit) -> unit) ->
Unix.file_descr ->
(Unix.sockaddr -> Socket.in_channel -> Socket.out_channel -> unit) -> 'a
accept ?thread socket f listen on socket and, for each authorized connection (see C.authorized_host), runs f addr inchan outchan where addr is the address of the connecting machine and inchan, outchan are buffered communication channels connected to the client. accept never returns normally.
thread : tells how to run f in a separate thread. A typical example is to declare it as fun f -> ignore(Thread.create f ()) but of course one can also arrange the reuse a thread of a pool. The default is not to create a new thread. Do not use that function to clone the process with fork or file descriptors will leak.
val daemon : Unix.sockaddr -> Socket.in_channel -> Socket.out_channel -> unit
deamon addr inchan outchan will read LPD queries on inchan and send replies on outchan. The particular treatement each query receives is determined by C.queues. addr is the address of the client. This function is typically used as accept (socket()) daemon.
