Summary: D-BUS is a simple IPC framework based on messages.
D-BUS is a system for low-latency, low-overhead, easy to use interprocess
communication (IPC). In more detail:
o D-BUS is low-latency because it is designed to avoid round trips and
allow asynchronous operation, much like the X protocol.
o D-BUS is low-overhead because it uses a binary protocol, and does not
have to convert to and from a text format such as XML. Because D-BUS is
intended for potentially high-resolution same-machine IPC, not primarily
for Internet IPC, this is an interesting optimization.
o D-BUS is easy to use because it works in terms of messages rather than
byte streams, and automatically handles a lot of the hard IPC issues.
Also, the D-BUS library is designed to be wrapped in a way that lets
developers use their framework's existing object/type system, rather
than learning a new one specifically for IPC.
This package contains D-BUS daemon and system utilities.
