basic_stream_socket::release (2 of 2 overloads)

Inherited from basic_socket.

Release ownership of the underlying native socket.

native_handle_type release(
    boost::system::error_code & ec);

This function causes all outstanding asynchronous connect, send and receive operations to finish immediately, and the handlers for cancelled operations will be passed the boost::asio::error::operation_aborted error. Ownership of the native socket is then transferred to the caller.

Parameters

ec

Set to indicate what error occurred, if any.

Remarks

This function is unsupported on Windows versions prior to Windows 8.1, and will fail with boost::asio::error::operation_not_supported on these platforms.
