This is done without using Microsoft's internal APIs. MAP_PRIVATE
mappings are copied to the subprocess via a pipe, since Microsoft
doesn't want us to have proper COW pages. MAP_SHARED mappings are
remapped without needing to do any copying. Global variables need
copying along with the stack and the whole heap of anonymous mem.
This actually improves the reliability of the redbean http server
although one shouldn't expect 10k+ connections on a home computer
that isn't running software built to serve like Linux or FreeBSD.
- Emulator can now test the αcτµαlly pδrταblε εxεcµταblε bootloader
- Whipped up a webserver named redbean. It services 150k requests per
second on a single core. Bundling assets inside zip enables extremely
fast serving for two reasons. The first is that zip central directory
lookups go faster than stat() system calls. The second is that both
zip and gzip content-encoding use DEFLATE, therefore, compressed
responses can be served via the sendfile() system call which does an
in-kernel copy directly from the zip executable structure. Also note
that red bean zip executables can be deployed easily to all platforms,
since these native executables work on Linux, Mac, BSD, and Windows.
- Address sanitizer now works very well
