Re: line discipline

Well, line discipline is nothing but how you process, control and 
manage the flow of characters on a line (say a character device). It is my
definition and not an authoritative one.

You may get an idea of what line discipline is by following this link
http://www.eros-os.org/design-notes/LineDiscDesign.html Moreover, go
through drivers/char/serial.c, drivers/char/tty_io.c, drivers/net/ppp.c
codes in the linux sources to get a clear picture of what disciplines are.
