posix::basic_stream_descriptor::native_non_blocking (3 of 3 overloads)

Inherited from posix::basic_descriptor.

Sets the non-blocking mode of the native descriptor implementation.

void native_non_blocking(
    bool mode,
    boost::system::error_code & ec);

This function is used to modify the non-blocking mode of the underlying native descriptor. It has no effect on the behaviour of the descriptor object's synchronous operations.



If true, the underlying descriptor is put into non-blocking mode and direct system calls may fail with boost::asio::error::would_block (or the equivalent system error).


Set to indicate what error occurred, if any. If the mode is false, but the current value of non_blocking() is true, this function fails with boost::asio::error::invalid_argument, as the combination does not make sense.
