virtual void close(void) = 0
bool flush(void)

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

int get_tcp_header_size(void) const

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

virtual bool is_closed(void) = 0
void set_tcp_header_size(int tcp_header_size)

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.
