NAME

       RTLinux — RealTime Linux

RTLinux

       RTLinux  (RealTimeLinux)  is  a  simple hard real time operating system
       that runs Linux as its lowest priority  thread.   RTLinux  follows  the
       POSIX  PSE51  profile  in  which  the  realtime  operating system looks
       something like a single POSIX  process,  with  applications  as  signal
       handlers  and  threads.  The  Linux  thread  provides access to all the
       services of a POSIX PSE54 operating system so that  the  hard  realtime
       part  can remain simple and fast.  Programming in RTLinux is relatively
       straightforward: RTLinux programs are  generally  written  as  loadable
       kernel  modules  and  use  the  pthreads  API.  Realtime components use
       signals, rt-fifos, and shared memory to communicate with  Linux  kernel
       and  user  programs.   RTLinux also offers optional user-mode access to
       realtime facilities via the rtlinux_sigaction system calls.
