File Stream

The most generic IO primitive in most operating systems is a file. "File" here doesn't mean a literal file on a disk, but rather an abstract device which supports read & write operations.

IO Ninja thinks of a file as of a generic IO stream with no special capabilities. Use this plugin for:

  • Named pipe communications
  • Mailslot communications
  • Talking to a custom device driver
  • Dumping all data received by another connection to a file on disk (see Session Linking)
