NAME

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

SYNOPSIS

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

DESCRIPTION

       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.

NAMESPACE

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

INHERITS FROM

       FBB::InetAddress

PROTECTED CONSTRUCTORS

       o      SocketBase(size_t port):
              This  constructor  creates  a  SocketBase  to  be  used  with ServerSocket-objects,
              listening on port.

       o      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.

PROTECTED MEMBER

       o      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.

MEMBER FUNCTIONS

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

       o      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;

       o      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;

       o      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;

       o      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;

       o      int socket() const:
              This accessor returns the FBB::SocketBase’s socket value.

EXAMPLE

       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>

       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.
