Benefits of STREAMS
STREAMS provides the following benefits:
A flexible, portable, and reusable set of tools
for development of UNIX system communication services.
Easy creation of modules that offer standard
data communications services and the ability to manipulate
those modules on a Stream.
From user level, modules can be dynamically selected and interconnected;
kernel programming, assembly, and link editing are not required to create the
STREAMS also greatly simplifies the user interface for languages
that have complex input and output requirements.
Standardized service interfaces
