Constructor Detail

def self.new(path : String, type : Type = Type::STREAM, backlog = 128) #

Creates a named UNIX socket, listening on a filesystem pathname.

Always deletes any existing filesystam pathname first, in order to cleanup any leftover socket file.

The server is of stream type by default, but this can be changed for another type. For example datagram messages:

UNIXServer.new("/tmp/dgram.sock", Socket::Type::DGRAM)

Class Method Detail

def self.open(path, type : Type = Type::STREAM, backlog = 128, &block) #

Creates a new UNIX server and yields it to the block. Eventually closes the server socket when the block returns.

Returns the value of the block.

Instance Method Detail

def accept? : UNIXSocket? #

Accepts an incoming connection.

Returns the client socket or nil if the server is closed after invoking this method.


[View source]
def close(delete = true) #

Closes the socket, then deletes the filesystem pathname if it exists.
