File Stream Terminal

The most generic IO primitive in most operating systems is a file — not a literal file on a disk, but rather an abstract device which supports read and write operations. The File Stream plugin allows you to work with such files directly.

Use this plugin for:

  • Windows named pipe client-side communications
  • Windows mailslot client-side communications
  • Talking to a custom device driver
  • Dumping all data received by another connection to a file on disk (see Session Linking)
