Subject RE: apr and pools
Date Thu, 02 May 2002 10:45:07 GMT

we think we found some problems with the definition of the macros in the
errno.h file as you can see below.
The extra ")" ends the macro and leavs out the last line that also was ment
to be included.

We are also trying to check for a socket timeout. How should this be done?

Currently we got this code to work, but I had the imression that the correct
and portable way should
be to test for the APR return code APR_POLLUP instead of using

regards Dagfinn

/** Read data from socket to buffer starting at 'ptr', maximum 'max'
 *  bytes. Return the number of bytes read, -1 if socket fault and
 *  if no data could be read.
 *  @see setSoTimeout for setting of timeout/ blocking period. */
int32 TcpSocket::read(char* buf, int32 max)

   apr_size_t mLen = max;

   apr = apr_recvfrom(myAddr, mySock, 0, buf, &mLen);

      debug(" ---  Socket Timeout\n");
      return 0;
   else if (apr != APR_SUCCESS) {
      fault = (fault != NULL) ? fault : new char[64];
      sprintf(fault,"Read fault on %s:%d, ", getLocalAddress(),
      uint8 len = strlen(fault);
      apr_strerror(apr, (fault+len), (63-len));
      debug(" ***  %d: %s\n", apr, fault);
      return  -1;
      return (int32) mLen;

You aren't passing the same pool to apr_accept(), are you?  Normally
you would have a temporary pool per connection, and pass that pool to

If this doesn't help, try posting enough code to see how you are using
pools w.r.t. sockets.
