NAME

       libssh2_channel_read_ex - read data from a channel stream

SYNOPSIS

       #include <libssh2.h>

       ssize_t libssh2_channel_read_ex(LIBSSH2_CHANNEL *channel, int stream_id, char *buf, size_t
       buflen);

       ssize_t libssh2_channel_read(LIBSSH2_CHANNEL *channel, char *buf, size_t buflen);

       ssize_t libssh2_channel_read_stderr(LIBSSH2_CHANNEL *channel, char *buf, size_t buflen);

DESCRIPTION

       Attempt to read data from an active channel stream. All channel streams have one  standard
       I/O  substream  (stream_id  ==  0),  and  may  have  up  to  2^32 extended data streams as
       identified by the selected stream_id. The SSH2 protocol currently defines a stream ID of 1
       to be the stderr substream.

       channel - active channel stream to read from.

       stream_id - substream ID number (e.g. 0 or SSH_EXTENDED_DATA_STDERR)

       buf - pointer to storage buffer to read data into

       buflen - size of the buf storage

       libssh2_channel_read(3) and libssh2_channel_read_stderr(3) are macros.

RETURN VALUE

       Actual  number  of bytes read or negative on failure. It returns LIBSSH2_ERROR_EAGAIN when
       it would otherwise block. While LIBSSH2_ERROR_EAGAIN is a negative number, it isn't really
       a failure per se.

       Note  that  a  return value of zero (0) can in fact be a legitimate value and only signals
       that no payload data was read. It is not an error.

ERRORS

       LIBSSH2_ERROR_SOCKET_SEND - Unable to send data on socket.

       LIBSSH2_ERROR_CHANNEL_CLOSED - The channel has been closed.
