FBB::LocalSocketBase - Base class for Unix Domain socket-constructing classes

#include <bobcat/localsocketbase>
Linking option: -lbobcat

This class is a base class for the FBB::LocalServerSocket and FBB::LocalClientSocket classes. Since it is designed as a base class, its constructor is protected. All its remaining members are protected as well.

All constructors, members, operators and manipulators, mentioned in this man-page, are defined in the namespace FBB.


The default constructor merely constructs a FBB::LocalSocketBase object. Before the object can be used, its open() member must be called first.
LocalSocketBase(string const &name):
This constructor creates a LocalSocketBase using the file specified in name as the Unix domain socket interface. If the socket could not be constructed, an FBB::Exception exception is thrown.

Copy and move constructors (and assignment operators) are not available.

open(string const &name):
This member initiaizes a LocalSocketBase object following its construction using the default constructor. The file specified in name is used as the Unix domain socket interface. If the socket could not be constructed, an FBB::Exception exception is thrown.
size_t size() const:
Accessor returning the size of the object’s sockaddr_un (address)
int socket() const:
This accessor returns the FBB::LocalSocketBase’s socket value.
sockaddr const *sockaddrPtr() const:
Accessor returning the pointer to the object’s sockaddr.

See the examples presented with the localclientsocket(3bobcat) and localserversocket(3bobcat) classes.
