udp(n)                                                           Tcl UDP extension                                                          udp(n)


udp - Create UDP sockets in Tcl SYNOPSIS
package require Tcl 8.2 package require udp 1.0 udp_open ?port? udp_conf sock host port udp_conf sock ?-myport? ?-remote? ?-peer? ?-broadcast bool? ?-ttl count? udp_conf ?-mcastadd groupaddr? udp_conf ?-mcastdrop groupaddr? udp_peek sock ?buffersize? _________________________________________________________________ DESCRIPTION
This package provides support for using UDP through Tcl. The package provides a new channel type and attempts to permit the use of packet oriented UDP over stream oriented Tcl channels. The package defined three commands but udp_conf should be considered depreciated in favour of the standard Tcl command fconfigure. COMMANDS
udp_open ?port? udp_open will open a UDP socket. If port is specified the UDP socket will be opened on that port. Otherwise the system will choose a port and the user can use the udp_conf command to obtain the port number if required. udp_conf sock host port udp_conf in this configuration is used to specify the remote destination for packets written to this sock. You must call this com- mand before writing data to the UDP socket. udp_conf sock ?-myport? ?-remote? ?-peer? ?-broadcast bool? ?-ttl count? In addition to being used to configure the remote host, the udp_conf command is used to obtain information about the UDP socket. -myport Returns the local port number of the socket. -remote Returns the remote hostname and port number as set using udp_conf sock host port. -peer Returns the remote hostname and port number for the packet most recently received by this socket. -broadcast ?boolean? UDP packets can listen and send on the broadcast address. For some systems a flag must be set on the socket to use broadcast. With no argument this option will return the broadcast setting. With a boolean argument the setting can be modified. -ttl ?count? The time-to-live is given as the number of router hops the packet may do. For multicast packets this is important in specify- ing the distribution of the packet. The system default for multicast is 1 which restricts the packet to the local subnet. To permit packets to pass routers, you must increase the ttl. A value of 31 should keep it within a site, while 255 is global. udp_conf ?-mcastadd groupaddr? udp_conf ?-mcastdrop groupaddr? tcludp sockets can support IPv4 multicast operations. To recieve multicast packets the application has to notify the operating sys- tem that it should join a particular multicast group. These are specified as addresses in the range to udp_peek sock ?buffersize? Examine a packet without removing it from the buffer. This function is not available on windows. EXAMPLES
# Send data to a remote UDP socket proc udp_puts {host port} { set s [udp_open] fconfigure $s -remote [list $host $port] puts $s "Hello, World" close $f } # A simple UDP server package require udp proc udpEventHandler {sock} { set pkt [read $sock] set peer [fconfigure $sock -peer] puts "$peer: [string length $pkt] {$pkt}" return } proc udp_listen {port} { set srv [udp_open $port] fconfigure $srv -buffering none -translation binary fileevent $srv readable [list ::udpEventHandler $srv] puts "Listening on udp port: [fconfigure $srv -myport]" return $srv } set sock [udp_listen 53530] vwait forever close $sock # A multicast demo. proc udpEvent {chan} { set data [read $chan] set peer [fconfigure $chan -peer] puts "$peer [string length $data] '$data'" if {[string match "QUIT*" $data]} { close $chan set ::forever 1 } return } set group set port 7771 set s [udp_open $port] fconfigure $s -buffering none -blocking 0 fconfigure $s -mcastadd $group -remote [list $group $port] fileevent $s readable [list udpEvent $s] puts -nonewline $s "hello, world" set ::forever 0 vwait ::forever exit HISTORY
Some of the code in this extension is copied from Michael Miller's tcludp package. ( Compared with Michael's UDP extension, this extension provides Windows sup- port and provides the ability of using 'gets/puts' to read/write the socket. In addition, it provides more configuration ability. Enhancements to support binary data and to setup the package for the Tcl Extension Architecture by Pat Thoyts. SEE ALSO
