Things were great, until some naysayer by the name of Vint Cerf warned everyone that we were about to run out of IPv4 addresses!

See connectbelow. And check it out: And that, my friends, is a quick overview of the almighty select function. You’ll probably have to wait some part of your standard Unix timeslice no matter how small you set your struct timeval.

A file descriptor is simply an integer associated with an open file. The actual network hardware and topology is transparent to the socket programmer. Use gettimeofday if you need to track time elapsed. Just in case you want beejd little more control over how the socket closes, you can use the shutdown function.

In fact, that’s the only difference between a UDP application that can broadcast guiee one that can’t. You’re saying, “Beej, is that true? In short, no changes are necessary to any of the code to make it run on a single non-networked machine! Another thing to watch out for when calling bind: Now, some of you might think this is a great way to wait for data on a datagram socket–and you are right: Some struct s are IPv4, some are IPv6, and some are both.


When you call one of these functions, the kernel takes over and does all the work for you automagically.

It uses stream sockets. No one wanted to have to tell you. Equally similar are recv and recvfrom.

If you don’t have them on your system already, you probably don’t need them. The function getpeername will tell you who is at the other end of a connected stream socket. There are more, but I didn’t want to scare you. Other apis on other oses. No problem, you say, just an accept and a couple of recv s. I will also share praise for Beej. C is special in that, as I said, it has been, and remains, a very important programming language in its ubiquity and sheer power.

Comer and David L. The prototype differs from that on my Linux box, so instead of:. A couple of questions, if you don’t mind. You’ll just have to write your own.


Finally, you need to call WSACleanup when you’re all through with the sockets library.

Data can’t be lost if you expect the application to work when it arrives! You give this function three input parameters, and it gives you a pointer to a linked-list, resof results.

Also, when the function returns, timeout might be updated to show the guise still remaining. What could be more fun? The Physical Layer is the hardware serial, Ethernet, etc.

In that, the man pages are no use, as you’ve probably guiee. So read furiously onward! Thus, there are 1, microseconds in a second. Whether you roll your own code or use someone else’s, it’s a good idea to have a general set of data packing routines for the sake of keeping bugs in check, rather than packing each bit by hand each time.
