Detailed Description

Unix domain sockets are used for stream based connected sessions between processes on the same machine.

An implicit and unique UnixSocket object exists in Common C++ to represent a bound Unix domain socket acting as a 'server' for receiving connection requests. This class is not part of UnixStream because such objects normally perform no physical I/O (read or write operations) other than to specify a listen backlog queue and perform 'accept' operations for pending connections.
