Yes I have google a few times, but nothing that I got was usefull :(
What I want to understand more is this: The way PB is constructed, an
old SW can talk to an newer SW and they can get along using only what
they understand, with little extra programing.
That per-se is probably close to what is called backward-and-forward
Just an example, if you plug a new SATA2 drive in an older machine and
it works, the other way around too. (It uses a serial protocol too)
What I want is to study what is behind those nice tricks.
thanks for your attention,
