Subject Re: cvs commit: apr/network_io/win32 sockopt.c
Date Mon, 05 Apr 2004 16:11:40 GMT
While patching sockopt.c, I should point out the need for the following 
case in the Win32 sockopt.c's apr_socket_opt_set routine:

        case APR_SO_SNDBUF:
            if (setsockopt(sock->socketdes, SOL_SOCKET, SO_SNDBUF, (void
    *)&on, sizeof(int)) == -1) {
                return apr_get_netos_error();

Without it one cannot set the send buffer size on Windows, which leads 
to a performance penalty on Windows.
