I'm trying to figure out the efficiency of
using sockets as an IPC mechanism. Obviously,
there is a data copy between the application
and the statck when data is read/written from/
to a socket. When passing between other
layers on the protocol stack, are pointers
simply being passed around or is a data copy
with memory allocation acutally ocurring?
