[REBOL] Network Port Reading Problem Re:(2)

From: rsnell:webtrends at: 7-Sep-2000 16:42

Thanks Holger. I'll try the xper but I really need to stick with a stable release at this point. It looks like I can use the /binary refinement and copy/part to get the data and that should work for now. One possible problem I saw though. I want to check whether there is data waiting on the port before trying to copy. I see the users guide says to use 'wait like [wait c 1] to wait on port c for 1 second. However, if I do the following:
>> c: open/binary tcp://host:23 >> print copy/part c 100 >> #{FFFD18FFFD1FFFFD23FFFD27FFFD24} >> wait c 1 ;should return after 1 second because there is no more data
/ (never returns from waiting) It doesn't seem like wait is working correctly. Basically I need something like the select() socket function. Am I doing the right thing here? Thanks again, Rodney
