NAME
libssh2_channel_read_ex - read data from a channel stream SYNOPSIS
#include <libssh2.h> ssize_t libssh2_channel_read_ex(LIBSSH2_CHANNEL *channel, int stream_id, char *buf, size_t buflen); ssize_t libssh2_channel_read(LIBSSH2_CHANNEL *channel, char *buf, size_t buflen); ssize_t libssh2_channel_read_stderr(LIBSSH2_CHANNEL *channel, char *buf, size_t buflen); DESCRIPTION
Attempt to read data from an active channel stream. All channel streams have one standard I/O substream (stream_id == 0), and may have up to 2^32 extended data streams as identified by the selected stream_id. The SSH2 protocol currently defines a stream ID of 1 to be the stderr substream. channel - active channel stream to read from. stream_id - substream ID number (e.g. 0 or SSH_EXTENDED_DATA_STDERR) buf - pointer to storage buffer to read data into buflen - size of the buf storage libssh2_channel_read(3) and libssh2_channel_read_stderr(3) are macros. RETURN VALUE
Actual number of bytes read or negative on failure. It returns LIBSSH2_ERROR_EAGAIN when it would otherwise block. While LIB- SSH2_ERROR_EAGAIN is a negative number, it isn't really a failure per se. Note that a return value of zero (0) can in fact be a legitimate value and only signals that no payload data was read. It is not an error. ERRORS
LIBSSH2_ERROR_SOCKET_SEND - Unable to send data on socket. LIBSSH2_ERROR_CHANNEL_CLOSED - The channel has been closed. SEE ALSO

NAME
libssh2_channel_handle_extended_data2 - set extended data handling mode SYNOPSIS
#include <libssh2.h> int libssh2_channel_handle_extended_data2(LIBSSH2_CHANNEL *channel, int ignore_mode); DESCRIPTION
channel - Active channel stream to change extended data handling on. ignore_mode - One of the three LIBSSH2_CHANNEL_EXTENDED_DATA_* Constants. LIBSSH2_CHANNEL_EXTENDED_DATA_NORMAL: Queue extended data for eventual reading LIBSSH2_CHANNEL_EXTENDED_DATA_MERGE: Treat extended data and ordinary data the same. Merge all substreams such that calls to libssh2_chan- nel_read(3) will pull from all substreams on a first-in/first-out basis. LIBSSH2_CHANNEL_EXTENDED_DATA_IGNORE: Discard all extended data as it arrives. Change how a channel deals with extended data packets. By default all extended data is queued until read by libssh2_channel_read_ex(3) RETURN VALUE
Return 0 on success or LIBSSH2_ERROR_EAGAIN when it would otherwise block. SEE ALSO
