Subject Re: Keeping track of socket settings...
Date Sun, 07 Jan 2001 21:43:38 GMT

Nicely put and that's exactly what I had in mind but after spending 10 hours
flogging to St Pete & back my mind isn't working as well as normal! (Mind
due, does it ever??)  Of course I was going to use the TCP_ flags but the
APR should do the job...  That said, we don't currently allow the user to
set TCP_CORK or TCP_NOPUSH, so maybe we should think about that?  Tracking
the TCP_ options might be safer and more flexible?


[apologies to Greg for sending him this twice, but I forgot about the reply
all again until I'd sent it!!!]
