[ net_tcp ]


[net_tcp] creates a network socket object and provides methods to be used for network communication via TCP. Accepts an optional parameter of a file descriptor.

When using the ->readObject and ->writeObject methods, the object gets copied and can be sent between threads. If the object is serializable, it can be sent over the network connection as well.

'Write: ' + #c->writeBytes('GET / HTTP/1.1
Accept: */*

'->asbytes) + '\n'
'Read: '+ #c->readSomeBytes(10000,1) + '\n'
