Read and write streams provide an easy way to exchange data to and from a variety of media in a device-independent way. Documentation Archive Developer Search.

CFNetwork Concepts

Now that you have created the stream, you can open it. See Listing for an example. A Guide to Controlling Autonomous Robots takes the reader on an adventure through the eyes of Midamba, a lad who has been stranded on a desert island and must find a way to program robots to help him escape.

SQLite Databases Chapter Additionally, you can use CFNetDiagnostics to query for connectivity status and provide uniform error messages to the user. If you understand the networking protocols and need the low-level control they provide but don’t want to implement them yourself, then CFNetwork is probably the right choice. Deserialization is the opposite of serialization.


See Listing for an example of how to do this. Using Network Diagnostics describes how to add network diagnostics to your application.

To poll a stream, you first check to see if the streams are ready for reading or writing, then perform a read or write operation on the stream. Fix typos or links Fix incorrect information Add or update code samples Add or update illustrations Add information about Learn hands-on, through easy examples, visuals, and code This is a unique introduction to programming robots to execute tasks autonomously.

Zero Configuration Networking: The Definitive Guide by Stuart Cheshire, Daniel H Steinberg

This allows you to not have to poll your socket stream, which would slow down the thread. However, if you need to use the proxy settings often for porgramming streams, it becomes a bit more complicated. The last parameter, NULLindicates that the caller does not want to create a write stream.

When you no longer need the stream, close and dispose of it. Release the current proxy dictionary and reload it with the new proxy settings. To submit a product bug or enhancement request, please visit the Bug Reporter page.

In your callback function, check the event code and take appropriate action. For example, if the programminng that the stream is connecting to requires a cfnettwork name and password, you need to set the appropriate properties so the stream can work properly.

This message is then serialized, a process that converts the message into a raw byte stream. If you set the copyDescription parameter to NULLthen the system will provide, if requested, a rudimentary description of what is in the memory pointed to by the info pointer.


Your input helps improve our developer documentation. It waits for events to occur, then calls whatever function is associated with a given event. To submit a product bug or enhancement request, please visit the Bug Reporter page. However, in certain rare circumstances, it can be useful to programimng so. Property Animation Chapter As a result of adding the dynamic store reference to the run loop, each time the proxies are changed your callback function will be run.

CFNetwork Programming Guide

Bill Phillips, Chris Stewart Length: Styles and Themes Chapter For write streams, find out whether the stream can be written to without blocking before writing to the stream. If your stream was a read stream called readStreamyour function call would be like that in Listing When using streams to communicate, there is always a chance, cfnetwprk with socket-based streams, that a data transfer could take a long time.

Both take buffer and buffer length parameters.
