 [1/1] from: rebolinth::nodep::dds::nl at: 20-Aug-2002 23:51

Hello Rebol Guru, ( Ill address directly :-) When a port is opened or closed or data is sent or incoming i see diferences in the state object! of that specific port. I would be such a relief to know that I could read usefull information form the state: opject! or it would be very usefull to know that its of no use to know anyway ;-) Please explain to me the variables possible for -->> state: make object! [ flags: 1024 misc: [116 [] 0] tail: 0 num: 0 with: "^M^/" custom: none index: 0 func: 3 fpos: 0 inBuffer: unset outBuffer: none ] So far :flags tell me the following ==> (Well dont tell use that we should not mess around with the flags because these are trackable...uhum...and as it seems now not even that secret...BUT what Im wondering about.. can we track a open? or close? on these flags??? regarding the listing below is wrong ;-) flags: == 4719107 when tcp opened (default /string /direct ) == 4719139 when tcp opened /binary == 4719171 when tcp openen /lines == 4719106 when tcp opened /write == 4719105 when tcp opened /read == 4721155 when tcp opened /no-wait .... .... .... == 524803 when tcp input recieved from remote == 1024 when tcp closed The rest below is guessed..adjustement is very welcome.. func: == 6 and 3 seen, probably to differentiate port use .. url file console.. ??? misc: == ???? tail: == probably used for files custom: == for custom opening a port index: == ??? index of the buffers???? fpos: == ??? file position ??? inbuffer: == IO outbuffer: == IO A Rebolish Thanks, (R)egards, Norman -- Conversation/lunch: "How do you Eat your Rebol in the Morning?"
