// PlatformChannel encapsulates construction and ownership of two entangled
// endpoints of a platform-specific communication primitive, e.g. a Windows
// pipe, a Unix domain socket, or a macOS Mach port pair. One endpoint is
// designated as the "local" endpoint and should be retained by the creating
// process; the other endpoint is designated as the "remote" endpoint and
// should be passed to an external process.
// PlatformChannels can be used to bootstrap Mojo IPC between one process and
// another. Typically the other process is a child of this process, and there
// are helper methods for passing the endpoint to a child as such; but this
// arrangement is not strictly necessary on all platforms.
// For a channel which allows clients to connect by name (i.e. a named pipe
// or socket server, supported only on Windows and POSIX systems) see
// NamedPlatformChannel.
// A common helper constant that is used to pass handle values on the
// command line when the relevant methods are used on this class.
