2 General

Socket communications are accessed by the use of controlmnemonics and deviceparameters. This binding uses the SOCKET mnemonicspace.

Socket identifiers (simply referred to as "sockets") are used by the implementation to identify the "socket handle" used by the underlying implementation. The actual mapping between socket identifiers and the underlying sockets is implementation specific.

Sockets are accessed and manipulated via a socket device. The socket device can contain a collection of sockets. At any time, a single socket from the collection is the current socket. Any socket in the collection can be designated to be the current socket. Furthermore, sockets can be attached (added) and detached (deleted) from the collection of sockets.
