Inheritance diagram

Inheritance diagram of SocketStream

close() → None
flush() → bool

Sends the most recently queued data now. This only has meaning if set_collect_tcp() has been set to true.

getTcpHeaderSize() → int

Returns the header size for datagrams. See setTcpHeaderSize().

isClosed() → bool
setTcpHeaderSize(tcp_header_size: int) → None

Sets the header size for datagrams. At the present, legal values for this are 0, 2, or 4; this specifies the number of bytes to use encode the datagram length at the start of each TCP datagram. Sender and receiver must independently agree on this.
