Read some data from the socket.
template< typename MutableBufferSequence> std::size_t read_some( const MutableBufferSequence & buffers);
This function is used to read data from the stream socket. The function call will block until one or more bytes of data has been read successfully, or until an error occurs.
One or more buffers into which the data will be read.
The number of bytes read.
Thrown on failure. An error code of
indicates that the connection was closed by the peer.
The read_some operation may not read all of the requested number of bytes.
Consider using the
read function if you need to
ensure that the requested amount of data is read before the blocking
To read into a single data buffer use the
buffer function as follows:
