Anthony,

The file would be a disk-based ringbuffer. There would need to be a well-known disk-based ringbuffer format, which currently doesn't exist. Perhaps a "libringbuffer" to encapsulate it. The format would need head and tail indexes and then the data, together with some thought for concurrent access (eg. a mutex which would require mmapping to use).

I imagine a libringbuffer which would expose methods to open a disk-based ringbuffer file, add data to the end of the buffer and read data out of it.
