NAME

       httpd_socket - Communication utility functions to be used by the Erlang
           web server API programmer.

DESCRIPTION

       This  module  provides  the Erlang web server API module programmer with utility functions
       for  generic  sockets  communication.   The   appropriate   communication   mechanism   is
       transparently used, that is, ip_comm or ssl.

EXPORTS

       deliver(SocketType, Socket, Data) -> Result

              Types:

                 SocketType = socket_type()
                 Socket = socket()
                 Data = io_list() | binary()
                 Result = socket_closed | void()

              deliver/3  sends  Data  over  Socket  using  the  specified  SocketType. Socket and
              SocketType is to be the socket and the socket_type form the mod record  as  defined
              in httpd.hrl

       peername(SocketType,Socket) -> {Port,IPAddress}

              Types:

                 SocketType = socket_type()
                 Socket = socket()
                 Port = integer()
                 IPAddress = string()

              peername/2 returns the Port and IPAddress of the remote Socket.

       resolve() -> HostName

              Types:

                 HostName = string()

              resolve/0 returns the official HostName of the current host.
