WRITE

Draft MDC Standard

Right Hand Pointer

3.4 Write Command

The Write command may be used to send data to a socket.

Data being transmitted is sent using the urgency mode currently in effect for the socket. The definition and usage of urgency mode is implementation-specific.

Write ! appends the first I/O delimiter (see X 3.1.3), if specified, to the internal output buffers for the current device. The process then immediately transfers the internally buffered output data to the underlying binding services. This command does not affect internally buffered input data. $X is set to 0. $Y is incremented by 1.

Write # causes the process to immediately transfer any internally buffered output data for the current device to the underlying binding services. No I/O delimiters are implicitly added to the internal output buffer. This command does not affect internally buffered input data. $X and $Y are set to 0.
