Code fragments/plug-ins for solaris?

Post by Dan Gild » Sun, 21 Apr 1996 04:00:00

Is there anyway to write code fragments or plug-ins easily for Unix and/or

Essentially, I want to do what something like Photoshop does on my Mac (and
what I can do as code resources on my Mac).

A program looks in a directory for its plug-ins.  It plug-in contains a
fragment of code with a defined entry-point and constant interface.  The
plug-in however, is not fully linked or executable.

I want to be able to jump from the main program into the plug-ins according
to when their execution should be appropriate.

The shared object libraries come close... but I don't want the restriction
of having to link the main program with the plug-ins.

There is problably some deep kernel magic involved here, and or icky assembly

If you know how I can do this, would you please mind sending me an email
describing how to do this (or better yet, source code!)?




1. update plug-ins in netscape 6.1

I have just install the netscape 6.1 on my linux 7.0 (kernel 2.2.16)
/usr/local/netscape/ directory, and I can run both the new netscape by
typing the /usr/local/netscape/netscape and the old version of
netscape by typing /usr/bin/netscape. After that I install the
realplayer8 to my linux box, but I can only open the video and audio
file in the old version of netscape, how can I make the realplayer
availible to my new version netscape as a plug-in?
