[zeromq-dev] Question: ipc and multiple listeners

Can 1 zmq_socket (REP/ROUTER) serve one ipc:///<some file path> for 
multiple processes on Linux? Won't the input/output be spliced?

It appears that it can. zeromq3 uses AF_UNIX, SOCK_STREAM as the ipc:// 
resource as defined in ipc_listener.cpp. Therefore, one zmq_socket can 
support multiple processes.

ipc is such a general term. The documentation does not indicate the form 
of ipc.
