Subject PATCH: Determine how many bytes are waiting to be read from a socket
Date Thu, 04 Mar 2004 22:51:50 GMT
Attached is a patch that adds a function apr_socket_pending(). This
allows the caller to find out how many bytes are waiting to be read from
a socket without actually reading those bytes.

I use this to determine if the peer has closed the connection. In that
case, the socket goes readable, and this function reports 0 bytes

I've added configure checks for sys/ioctl.h, to get ioctl() and
FIONREAD. These should exist on just about all Unix-ish systems. Just in
case it doesn't, I've added an alternative implementation that uses
recv() and MSG_PEEK. I assume recv() is available, because functions in
sendrecv.c assume this too.
