Detailed Description

Unix domain sockets are used for stream based connected sessions between processes on the same machine.

An implicit and unique UnixSocket object exists in Common C++ to represent a bound Unix domain socket acting as a ’server’ for receiving connection requests. This class is not part of UnixStream because such objects normally perform no physical I/O (read or write operations) other than to specify a listen backlog queue and perform ’accept’ operations for pending connections.

Constructor & Destructor Documentation

ost::UnixSocket::UnixSocket (const char * pathname, int backlog = 5)
A Unix domain ’server’ is created as a Unix domain socket that is bound to a pathname and that has a backlog queue to listen for connection requests. If the server cannot be created, an exception is thrown.

Parameters:

pathname pathname to socket file
backlog
size of connection request queue.

virtual ost::UnixSocket::~UnixSocket () [virtual]
Use base socket handler for ending this socket.
