A TCP socket class : allow you to both connect to a given server and exchange messages or start your own server and wait for connections.


new ()

Creates a new unconnected socket.


accept ():Tuple2<Socket, Address>

Accept a new connected client. This will return a connected socket on which you can read/write some data.

bind (address:Address):Void

Bind the socket to the given host/port so it can afterwards listen for connections there.

close ():Void

Closes the socket : make sure to properly close all your sockets or you will crash when you run out of file descriptors.

connect (addr:Address):Void

Connect to the given server host/port. Throw an exception in case we couldn't sucessfully connect.

fileno ():Int

getpeername ():Address

Return the informations about the other side of a connected socket.

getsockname ():Address

Return the informations about our side of a connected socket.

listen (connections:Int):Void

Allow the socket to listen for incoming questions. The parameter tells how many pending connections we can have until they get refused. Use accept() to accept incoming connections.

recv (n:Int, flags:Int):BytesData

send (d:BytesData, flags:Int):Int

setblocking (b:Bool):Void

Change the blocking mode of the socket. A blocking socket is the default behavior. A non-blocking socket will abort blocking operations immediatly by throwing a haxe.io.Error.Blocking value.

setsockopt (family:Int, option:Int, value:Bool):Void

settimeout (timeout:Float):Void

Gives a timeout after which blocking socket operations (such as reading and writing) will abort and throw an exception.
