I had posted a year or so ago, I am still a fan of dclib, which is great to the bone ;-)
Today, I ran into a small problem: I wanted to create a socket server (e.g. like your http server example), that does disconnect the client after some time, when no input is sent.
(Example: start your http server example, then telnet localhost:5000 and type nothing). I tried all server interfaces you offer (with connections converted to streams) to somehow achieve non-blocking IO via iostream::readsome(), but it does not work, when no characters have been sent (e.g. a user connects via telnet and does nothing).
Would it be hard to implement a method, that either returns a file descriptor (so I can call non-blocking select()), or offers some kind of timeout mechanism on the connection object itself?
Thanks for your help and keep up the good work!
Glad you still find it useful :)
Have you looked at the timeout object? http://dclib.sourceforge.net/dlib/timeout/timeout_kernel_abstract.h.html
I think it might be what you are looking for.
Wow, thanks for the quick help, once again! The timeout object works flawlessly, great!
(Just a small update to the example code snipplet in timeout_kernel_abstract.h:
It should read timeout::kernel_1a t(...) instead of timeout t(...))
I really love the library and the support you are giving! Thank you very much!
Btw: your library works very clean when using tools like valgrind - in contrast to other libraries ;-)
Best greetings from Germany,
Let me know if you encounter any other issues with the library.
