Public Member Functions


SimpleTCPStream (TCPSocket &server, size_t size=512)
Create a TCP stream by accepting a connection from a bound TCP socket acting as a server.
SimpleTCPStream (const IPV4Host &host, tpport_t port, size_t size=512)
Create a TCP stream by connecting to a TCP socket (on a remote machine).
SimpleTCPStream (const SimpleTCPStream &source)
A copy constructor creates a new stream buffer.
virtual ~SimpleTCPStream ()
Flush and empty all buffers, and then remove the allocated buffers.
bool isPending (Pending pend, timeout_t timeout=TIMEOUT_INF)
Get the status of pending stream data.
void flush ()

ssize_t read (char *bytes, size_t length, timeout_t timeout=0)
Read bytes into a buffer.
ssize_t write (const char *bytes, size_t length, timeout_t timeout=0)
Write bytes to buffer.
ssize_t peek (char *bytes, size_t length, timeout_t timeout=0)
Peek at the incoming data.

Constructor & Destructor Documentation

 

ost::SimpleTCPStream::SimpleTCPStream () [protected]

The constructor required for 'SimpleTCPStream', a more C++ style version of the SimpleTCPStream class.  

ost::SimpleTCPStream::SimpleTCPStream (TCPSocket & server, size_t size = 512)

Create a TCP stream by accepting a connection from a bound TCP socket acting as a server. This performs an 'accept' call.

Parameters:

server bound server tcp socket.
size of streaming input and output buffers.

 

ost::SimpleTCPStream::SimpleTCPStream (const IPV4Host & host, tpport_t port, size_t size = 512)

Create a TCP stream by connecting to a TCP socket (on a remote machine). Parameters:

host address of remote TCP server.
port number to connect.
size of streaming input and output buffers.

 

ost::SimpleTCPStream::SimpleTCPStream (const SimpleTCPStream & source)

A copy constructor creates a new stream buffer. Parameters:

source A reference to the SimpleTCPStream to copy.

 

virtual ost::SimpleTCPStream::~SimpleTCPStream () [virtual]

Flush and empty all buffers, and then remove the allocated buffers.  

Member Function Documentation

 

void ost::SimpleTCPStream::Connect (const IPV4Host & host, tpport_t port, size_t size) [protected]

Create a TCP stream by connecting to a TCP socket (on a remote machine). Parameters:

host address of remote TCP server.
port number to connect.
size of streaming input and output buffers.

 

void ost::SimpleTCPStream::endStream (void) [protected]

Used to terminate the buffer space and cleanup the socket connection. This fucntion is called by the destructor.  

void ost::SimpleTCPStream::flush () [inline]

 

bool ost::SimpleTCPStream::isPending (Pending pend, timeout_t timeout = TIMEOUT_INF) [virtual]

Get the status of pending stream data. This method can be used to examine if input or output is waiting, or if an error or disconnect has occured on the stream. If a read buffer contains data then input is ready. If write buffer contains data, it is first flushed and then checked.

Parameters:

pend Flag indicating means to pend.
timeout The length of time to wait.

Reimplemented from ost::Socket.  

ssize_t ost::SimpleTCPStream::peek (char * bytes, size_t length, timeout_t timeout = 0)

Peek at the incoming data. The data is copied into the buffer but is not removed from the input queue. The function then returns the number of bytes currently pending to receive.

Parameters:

bytes A pointer to buffer that will contain the bytes read.
length The number of bytes to read (exactly).
timeout Period to time out, in milleseconds.

Returns:

The number of bytes pending on the input queue, 0 on EOF.

 

ssize_t ost::SimpleTCPStream::read (char * bytes, size_t length, timeout_t timeout = 0)

Read bytes into a buffer. <long-description>

Parameters:

bytes A pointer to buffer that will contain the bytes read.
length The number of bytes to read (exactly).
timeout Period to time out, in milleseconds.

Returns:

The number of bytes actually read, 0 on EOF.

 

ssize_t ost::SimpleTCPStream::write (const char * bytes, size_t length, timeout_t timeout = 0)

Write bytes to buffer. <long-description>

Parameters:

bytes A pointer to a buffer containing the bytes to write.
length The number of bytes to write (exactly).
timeout Period to time out, in milleseconds.

Returns:

The number of bytes actually written.
