7.1.3.2.4 Sockets

The following nodes are defined in ^$Device for the SOCKET mnemonicspace:

^$Device( devicexpr , expr V "SOCKET") = intexpr

Each device has a collection of sockets associated with it. Each new socket is identified by a socket identifier which is assigned an index number in the collection of sockets. This node of ^$Device defines the index number of the current socket.

^$Device( devicexpr , expr V "SOCKET", intexpr , expr2 V "DELIMITER") = intexpr2

This provides the number of I/O delimiters, as defined using the DELIMITER deviceattribute, in effect for the device/socket. (See Appendix H, 3.1.3)

^$Device( devicexpr , expr1 V "SOCKET", intexpr1 , expr2 V "DELIMITER", intexpr2) = expr

This provides the n-th I/O delimiter string. (See Appendix H, 3.1.3)

^$Device( devicexpr , expr1 V "SOCKET", intexpr , expr2 V "IOERROR") = expr3

I/O error trapping mode. (See Appendix H, 3.1.4)

^$Device( devicexpr , expr1 V "SOCKET", intexpr , expr2 V "LOCALADDRESS") = expr3

This provides the local network node address of the connection

^$Device( devicexpr , expr1 V "SOCKET", intexpr , expr2 V "PROTOCOL") = expr3

This provides the network protocol used for the connection

^$Device( devicexpr , expr1 V "SOCKET", intexpr , expr2 V "REMOTEADDRESS") = expr3

This provides the remote network node address of the connection

^$Device( devicexpr , expr1 V "SOCKET", intexpr , expr2 V "SOCKETHANDLE") = expr3

The value of this node is an implementation-specific string that provides the socket identifier of the indicated socket.
