Buffering/reblocking program for tape backups, printing, etc.
Buffer implements double buffering and can be used to keep backup tapes
streaming or printers printing. It can also be used to convert a data
stream to a given output blocksize.
Buffer uses shared memory to convert a variable input data rate to a
constant output data rate. It is typically used in a pipe between a backup
program and the tape device, but there are also other applications like
buffering printer data in lpd's input filter.
This is a program designed to speed up writing tapes on remote tape
drives. Requirements are shared memory and locks which normally
means that these are supported in your kernel.
Buffer has been tested under SunOS 4.0.*, SunOS 4.1.*, Solarix, HP-UX 7.0,
and Gould UTX 2.1A (sv universe).
The program splits itself into two processes. The first process reads
(and reblocks) from stdin into a share
