TCPRecv Parameter maxlen

Recommended Posts

ccbamatx

Can someone tell me the significance of the TCPRecv parameter maxlen? I know that it is required and I know that it is the maximum # of characters to receive.

But, if I have a string that is 10 bytes long and have maxlen set to 32, it will terminate anyway.

If I have a string that is 15,000 bytes long and have maxlen set to 32, I just have to keep reading and appending.

I can't see many circumstances, other than the old style fixed length variables, where I would know the exact length of the string that I am to receive.

Is there a efficiency issue here?

I guess I am asking, what is the optimum maxlen? And why?

Thanks,

CCB

Spend some time searching for MTU. Here's one that is a good starter.


Serial port communications UDF Includes functions for binary transmission and reception.printing UDF Useful for graphs, forms, labels, reports etc.Add User Call Tips to SciTE for functions in UDFs not included with AutoIt and for your own scripts.Functions with parameters in OnEvent mode and for Hot Keys One function replaces GuiSetOnEvent, GuiCtrlSetOnEvent and HotKeySet.UDF IsConnected2 for notification of status of connected state of many urls or IPs, without slowing the script.
