Description Marcin 2013-12-19 20:01:07 UTC
This is a feature request. It would be useful in a shared hosting environment to be able to use the pipe connecter to create a domain socket somewhere other than /tmp.

I propose that if the name component of the acceptor string is a path (i.e. it contains separator), it is treated as filename specifying where to put the socket.

To reproduce, start OpenOffice with the -accept option:

/opt/openoffice4/program/soffice  "-accept=pipe,name=$USER;urp;"

Then look at /tmp, you'll find a socket file named /tmp/OSL_PIPE_[N]_[$USER]
