Is there a way to add STREAMS support to LINUX?  I am currently using LINUX 2.0 (from a Walnut Creek Slackware 96 CD-ROM), and I am trying to set up STREAMS support for LINUX, so I can use PROGRESS (V6.0G3) with LINUX.

If you want to port the SysVR5 streams layers to linux, you
are looking at a MAJOR project.  If you manage to do so, you
will be popularly acclaimed as a networking guru by all who
use Linux.

In short, streams support has not yet been ported to linux,
and people who have looked at the problem have decided that
it would be extremely difficult.  Motivation is fairly low,
since existing networking capabilities (sockets) are
adequate.
