A public forum for discussing the design of software, from the user interface to the code architecture. Now closed.
My primary area of work deals with
network interface drivers.(*nix like OS & C)
I have been looking for some guidance to understand the software abstraction at some
level of detail.I mean,describing a network interface,say you have a card/motherboard with say a physical ethernet port.How are these interfaces typically described in software?I am not looking at the details of the data structures that would describe them.I do have a working knowledge of these things,but that leap from h/w to s/w is what I am trying to understand.
I am not very sure if I have made myself clear here.
In brief,given an interface card of some kind,how to
think and arrive at a software model of the same?
Any comments/suggestions/pointers to resources are
