css - multiplex multiple clients on one connect stream server

SYNOPSIS

css [ options ] connect-stream command [ arg ... ]

DESCRIPTION

css multiplexes multiple clients on one filter server. A filter server is a process that reads lines from the standard input and writes result lines to the standard output. connect-stream is the connect stream path by which the filter service will be known.

OPTIONS

-t, --timeout=time

The service will exit after a time period of client inactivity.

PROTOCOL

A filter service must follow a simple line oriented protocol. All client lines are split into arguments and a number is inserted in the second argument position. This number, followed by a space, must be placed at the beginning of each line written by the filter server for the given client request.
