NSMachPort Mac OS X 10.0

This subclass of NSPort provides an object-oriented wrapper to Mach IPC ports, which can be used either as endpoint for distributed object connections, or for raw messaging. NSMachPort objects only support local messaging; NSSocketPort provides support for remote messaging over a network.
