Class Netchannels.socket_descr


class socket_descr : ?blocking:bool -> ?start_pos_in:int -> ?start_pos_out:int -> Unix.file_descr -> raw_io_channel
Creates a raw_io_channel for the passed socket descriptor, which must be open for reading and writing, and not yet shut down in either direction. The raw_io_channel is used to represent a bidirectional channel: close_out shuts the socket down for sending, close_in shuts the socket down for reading, and when both directions are down, the descriptor is closed.

The pos_in and pos_out methods returns logical positions.

This class supports sockets and Win32 named pipes. Note, however, that for Win32 named pipes it is not possible to shut down only one direction of the bidirectional data channel.


blocking : See Netchannels.input_descr and Netchannels.output_descr
start_pos_in : The position to which pos_in is initialized when the channel is created, by default 0
start_pos_out : The position to which pos_out is initialized when the channel is created, by default 0
