Efl.Net.Server.Unix (class)


An AF_UNIX server.

The Efl.Net.Server.serve method will call bind(2) directly. This means the path will be accessed and created in that method. If the created socket must be subject to some special mode or user, change before executing said method, for example by calling umask(2).

Since 1.19

Full hierarchy


destructor [Overridden from Efl.Object]

Call the object's destructor.
void efl_destructor(Eo *obj);

leading_directories_create (get, set)

If true, all parent directories will be created with the given mode.
void efl_net_server_unix_leading_directories_create_get(const Eo *obj, Eina_Bool *leading_directories_create, unsigned int *mode);
void efl_net_server_unix_leading_directories_create_set(Eo *obj, Eina_Bool leading_directories_create, unsigned int mode);

serve [Overridden from Efl.Net.Server]

Starts serving requests.
Eina_Error efl_net_server_serve(Eo *obj, const char *address);

socket_activate [Overridden from Efl.Net.Server.Fd]

If this method is called, use an already activated socket.
Eina_Error efl_net_server_fd_socket_activate(Eo *obj, const char *address);

unlink_before_bind (get, set)

AF_UNIX paths may be stale due to crashes. Remove files and try again.
Eina_Bool efl_net_server_unix_unlink_before_bind_get(const Eo *obj);
void efl_net_server_unix_unlink_before_bind_set(Eo *obj, Eina_Bool unlink_before_bind);

client_add protected [Overridden from Efl.Net.Server.Fd]

Accepts a new client, should emit "client,add".
void efl_net_server_fd_client_add(Eo *obj, int client_fd);

client_reject protected [Overridden from Efl.Net.Server.Fd]

Rejects a new client, should emit "client,rejected".
void efl_net_server_fd_client_reject(Eo *obj, int client_fd);


loop (get) The loop to which this object belongs to.
fd_file (get, set) Defines which file descriptor to watch when watching a file.
parent (get, set) The parent of an object.
protected set address (get, set) The address to which the server is bound.
protected set clients_count (get, set) Number of concurrent clients accepted by the server.
clients_limit (get, set) Number of maximum concurrent clients allowed by the server.
close_on_exec (get, set) Controls Close-on-Exec() using FD_CLOEXEC.
constructor Call the object's constructor.
protected set family (get, set) The address family (AF_*) family of this socket.
fd (get, set) Defines which file descriptor to watch. If it is a file, use file_fd variant.
finalize Called at the end of efl_add. Should not be called, just overridden.
reuse_address (get, set) Controls address reuse() using SO_REUSEADDR
reuse_port (get, set) Controls port reuse() using SO_REUSEPORT (since linux 3.9)
protected set serving (get, set) Returns whenever the server is ready to accept clients or not.
protected client_announce Implementions should call this method to announce new clients.
protected process_incoming_data When the socket has data to be read, process it.
allow_parent_unref (get, set) Allow an object to be deleted by unref even if it has a parent.
children_iterator_new Get an iterator on all childrens
comment (get, set) A human readable comment for the object
composite_attach Make an object a composite object of another.
composite_detach Detach a composite object from another object.
composite_part_is Check if an object is part of a composite object.
debug_name_override Build a read-only name for this object used for debugging.
del Unrefs the object and reparents it to NULL.
event_callback_forwarder_add Add an event callback forwarder for an event and an object.
event_callback_forwarder_del Remove an event callback forwarder for an event and an object.
event_callback_stop Stop the current callback call.
event_freeze Freeze events of object.
event_freeze_count (get) Return freeze events of object.
class event_global_freeze Freeze events of object.
class event_global_freeze_count (get) Return freeze events of object.
class event_global_thaw Thaw events of object.
event_thaw Thaw events of object.
finalized (get) True if the object is already finalized, otherwise false.
name (get, set) The name of the object.
name_find Find a child object with the given name and return it.
provider_find Searches upwards in the object tree for a provider which knows the given class/interface.



error Called when a error occurred on the file descriptor
read Called when a read happened on the file descriptor
write Called when a write happened on the file descriptor
client,add A new client socket has been created.
client,rejected Notifies a client was rejected due excess, see Efl.Net.Server.clients_limit.
serving Notifies the server is ready to accept clients. See property Efl.Net.Server.serving
callback,add A callback was added.
callback,del A callback was deleted.
del Object is being deleted.
destruct Object has been fully destroyed. It can not be used beyond this point. This event should only serve to clean up any dangling pointer.
