filebuf_buf2sd() Function

The filebuf_buf2sd function sends a file buffer to a socket (descriptor) and returns the number of bytes sent.

Use this function to send the contents of an entire file to the client.


int filebuf_buf2sd(filebuf *buf, SYS_NETFD sd);

Return Values

The number of bytes sent to the socket if successful, or the constant IO_ERROR if the file buffer cannot be sent.


filebuf *buf is the file buffer that must already have been opened.

SYS_NETFD sd is the platform-independent socket descriptor. Normally this parameter is obtained from the csd, client socket descriptor field of the sn or the session structure.


if (filebuf_buf2sd(buf, sn->csd) == IO_ERROR)
