Summary
  • Software communications architecture depends on considerations of the concepts of complexity, modularity, concurrency and synchronization. Aside from problem complexity, there is program complexity which can be reduced by structuring the program. Coupling is the greatest contributor to program complexity, while modularity is one method for limiting it. A necessary companion of modularity is data exchange. Modules must be able to share information. In the UNIX operating system and the C programming language, new communications capabilities emerge at every level. As for concurrency, UNIX is a multitasking operating system which executes many programs simultaneously. Concurrency introduces multiple executions that must be synchronized. Interprocess communicators address these issues.
