    makes perfect sense to me. Shame I don't know the answer though (at least, not in the positive sense).

    For those that don't understand, these are Unix sockets.

    rotis, if you can't find what you're looking for, just build it yourself
    When all else fails, read the instructions.
    If you're posting code, use code tags: [code] /* insert code here */ [/code]

    I knew what unix sockets were, just the "bind to the command-line" threw me off.
