9P (protocol)

9p (Protocol) is a type of network communication that allows different computers to exchange information. It works by sending data in small packages, kind of like letters. Each package has a special address for the other computer to understand where the data came from and where its going. When the other computer gets the package, it can use the address to send data back to the first computer. This way, the two computers can have a conversation and send data back and forth.
