Detailed Description

This class is a factory for starting off asynchronous transmit files on a stream.

Once {open} is called, multiple asynchronous {transmit_file}s can started using this class. A ACE_Asynch_Transmit_File::Result will be passed back to the {handler} when the asynchronous transmit file completes through the {ACE_Handler::handle_transmit_file} callback. The transmit_file function transmits file data over a connected network connection. The function uses the operating system's cache manager to retrieve the file data. This function provides high-performance file data transfer over network connections. This function would be of great use in a Web Server, Image Server, etc.

Member Function Documentation

ACE_Asynch_Operation_Impl * ACE_Asynch_Transmit_File::implementation void   )  const [virtual]

Return the underlying implementation class.

Implements ACE_Asynch_Operation.

int ACE_Asynch_Transmit_File::open ACE_Handler handler,
const void *  completion_key = 0,
ACE_Proactor proactor = 0

Initializes the factory with information which will be used with each asynchronous call. If ({handle} == ACE_INVALID_HANDLE), {ACE_Handler::handle} will be called on the {handler} to get the correct handle.

Reimplemented from ACE_Asynch_Operation.

int ACE_Asynch_Transmit_File::transmit_file ACE_HANDLE  file,
Header_And_Trailer header_and_trailer = 0,
size_t  bytes_to_write = 0,
unsigned long  offset = 0,
unsigned long  offset_high = 0,
size_t  bytes_per_send = 0,
unsigned long  flags = 0,
const void *  act = 0,
int  priority = 0,
int  signal_number = ACE_SIGRTMIN

This starts off an asynchronous transmit file. The {file} is a handle to an open file. {header_and_trailer} is a pointer to a data structure that contains pointers to data to send before and after the file data is sent. Set this parameter to 0 if you only want to transmit the file data. Upto {bytes_to_write} will be written to the {socket}. If you want to send the entire file, let {bytes_to_write} = 0. {bytes_per_send} is the size of each block of data sent per send operation. Please read the Win32 documentation on what the flags should be. Priority of the operation is specified by {priority}. On POSIX4-Unix, this is supported. Works like {nice} in Unix. Negative values are not allowed. 0 means priority of the operation same as the process priority. 1 means priority of the operation is one less than process. And so forth. On Win32, this is a no-op. {signal_number} is the POSIX4 real-time signal number to be used for the operation. {signal_number} ranges from ACE_SIGRTMIN to ACE_SIGRTMAX. This argument is a no-op on non-POSIX4 systems.
