[MD1] Universal PPP programmers' API
From: Richard Buckle (richardb@cocytus.demon.co.uk) In the past few years there's been an explosion of mutually incompatible PPP drivers for the Mac. Writing one product to support them all cleanly was a programmer's nightmare -- not to mention the testing. The Universal PPP API is the solution: a general wrapper that dynamically detects which PPP driver is in use and maps to its sub-API. Programmers can simply code to the Universal API. For users, it "just works", even if they switch between PPP flavours without restarting. Performance has been carefully optimised. The underlying code is modular, and other protocols (such as SLIP) which have a well-definined API can easily be added. Mail me if you would like me to add support for your protocol. The Universal PPP API currently supports: * Metrowerks C, C++ and Pascal. * Open Transport 1.1.1 or better, or MacTCP 2.0.6. * All versions of MacPPP, FreePPP, OT/PPP and ARA/PPP available at the time of writing. Example projects are...
