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.
