    hi,
    I was wondering if forking sz and rz would be considered portable or not, and whether i could just make it read from the forked stream and post it

    [l]sz/rz sends and receives data (X/Y/ZMODEM packets) using stdio. This is "portable" on most Unix-like OSes, yes. In fact, this is exactly how Synchronet supports x/y/zmodem transfers using stdio protocol drivers (like lsz/rz) on Unix-like OSes. On Windows, a protocol driver is expected to support socket I/O directly (not via stdio stream) and accept an inheritable socket descriptor (e.g. via command-line argument) on which to send and receive data.
