Types

Name

Description

broadcast

Socket option to permit sending of broadcast messages.

bytes_readable

IO control command to get the amount of data that can be read without blocking.

debug

Socket option to enable socket-level debugging.

do_not_route

Socket option to prevent routing, use local interfaces only.

enable_connection_aborted

Socket option to report aborted connections on accept.

endpoint_type

The endpoint type.

implementation_type

The underlying implementation type of I/O object.

keep_alive

Socket option to send keep-alives.

linger

Socket option to specify whether the socket lingers on close if unsent data is present.

lowest_layer_type

A basic_socket is always the lowest layer.

message_flags

Bitmask type for flags that can be passed to send and receive operations.

native_type

The native representation of a socket.

non_blocking_io

IO control command to set the blocking mode of the socket.

protocol_type

The protocol type.

receive_buffer_size

Socket option for the receive buffer size of a socket.

receive_low_watermark

Socket option for the receive low watermark.

reuse_address

Socket option to allow the socket to be bound to an address that is already in use.

send_buffer_size

Socket option for the send buffer size of a socket.

send_low_watermark

Socket option for the send low watermark.

service_type

The type of the service that will be used to provide I/O operations.

shutdown_type

Different ways a socket may be shutdown.

Member Functions

async_receive

Start an asynchronous receive.

async_send

Start an asynchronous send.

async_write_some

Start an asynchronous write.

at_mark

Determine whether the socket is at the out-of-band data mark.

available

Determine the number of bytes available for reading.

basic_stream_socket

io_service

(Deprecated: use get_io_service().) Get the io_service associated with the object.

is_open

Determine whether the socket is open.

local_endpoint

Get the local endpoint of the socket.

lowest_layer

Get a reference to the lowest layer.

native

Get the native socket representation.

open

Open the socket using the specified protocol.

read_some

Read some data from the socket.

receive

Receive some data on the socket.

remote_endpoint

Get the remote endpoint of the socket.

send

Send some data on the socket.

set_option

Set an option on the socket.

shutdown

write_some

Write some data to the socket.

Data Members

Name

Description

max_connections

The maximum length of the queue of pending incoming connections.

message_do_not_route

Specify that the data should not be subject to routing.

message_out_of_band

Process out-of-band data.

message_peek

Peek at incoming data without removing it from the input queue.

Protected Data Members

Name

Description

implementation

The underlying implementation of the I/O object.

service

The service associated with the I/O object.

The basic_stream_socket class template provides asynchronous and blocking stream-oriented socket functionality.

Thread Safety
