FBB::SocketBase(3bobcat) Base class for sockets FBB::SocketBase(3bobcat)

FBB::SocketBase - Base class for socket-constructing classes

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

This class is a base class for the FBB::ServerSocket and FBB::ClientSocket classes. Since it is designed as a base class, all its constructors are protected.

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

FBB::InetAddress

SocketBase(size_t port):
This constructor creates a SocketBase to be used with ServerSocket-objects, listening on port.
SocketBase(std::string const &host, uint16_t port):
This constructor creates a FBB::SocketBase to be used with a ClientSocket-object, connecting to hostname, at port `port’.

These constructors throw a std::exception if they could not properly complete.

The copy constructor and copy assignment operator are available. Both offer protected access rights.

SocketBase makeBase(int socket, sockaddr_in const &address):
This member returns a FBB::SocketBase object initializing its socket and FBB::InetAddress from the provided arguments.

All members of FBB::InetAddress are available, as FBB::SocketBase inherits from this class.

bool debug() const:
This accessor returns true if the socket’s debug (SO_DEBUG) socket option is active. It throws an FBB::Exception exception if the status of the debug option could not be determined;
bool reuse() const:
This accessor returns true if the socket’s reuse (SO_REUSEADDR) socket option is active. It throws an FBB::Exception exception if the status of the reuse option could not be determined;
void setDebug(bool trueIsOn) const:
This member may be used to modify the socket’s debug (SO_DEBUG) socket option. It throws an FBB::Exception exception if the socket’s debug option could not be modified;
void setReuse(bool trueIsOn) const:
This member may be used to modify the socket’s reuse (SO_REUSEADDR) socket option. It throws an FBB::Exception exception if the socket’s reuse option could not be modified;
int socket() const:
This accessor returns the FBB::SocketBase’s socket value.

The classes FBB::ClientSocket and FBB::ServerSocket were derived from SocketBase. E.g.,

#ifndef INCLUDED_BOBCAT_CLIENTSOCKET_
#define INCLUDED_BOBCAT_CLIENTSOCKET_
#include <string>
#include <bobcat/socketbase>
#include <bobcat/exception>
namespace FBB
{
class ClientSocket: public SocketBase
{
    public:
                                // host may be address or name
        ClientSocket(std::string const &host, uint16_t port);
        int connect();          // returns fd (socket) to talk to the server
};
} // FBB
#endif

See the clientsocket(3bobcat) man-page for an example showing how to use FBB::ClientSocket.
