ANSI-CIO is a set of transparent replacements for the file functions in stdio.h and unistd.h. They offer the ability to share file accesses, and to open, read, write (and more) files concurrently. Using these functions it is possible to open a file more often than only once and to access it. All functions are completely compatible with their ANSI counterparts.

FastFwD has been tested for Linux and QNX and should compile and work with all POSIX-based systems.

@stachrom: I only have a German link for the information so I'll repeat it in English here. The most interesting product they planned to sell was a luster terminal that could be connected to every electrical line easily was dropped, you will never be able to buy it for updating old hardware/old installations.
And they published information about the price, so you will have to calculate with about 1000 Euro for a small room - and the server is not included in this price.
This project could be interesting but it is not fro two major reasons:
- the hardware is much to expensive (and they dropped some of the most interesting parts of it)
- the documentation of the server is poor, and for a company that wants to sell a professional product is is simply a shame
