Jim - thanks for the kind words :-)
I do have both still up there - but the TCP sample goes by the snappy
TCP App 1 (which is the 'server' style app - but see below)
TCP App 2 (the client)
TCP App1 is simplified from a normal server, because it will only accept
a single connection, but that has little impact on the way the rest of
But Dave is right that these are basically 'sample' apps rather than
full blown real-world apps. However, I think they have enough in there
to be robust and useful as a starting place.
In general, the Rev docs on networking are skimpy - especially for UDP -
but it all seems to work reliably and to have most things that would be
needed by 90% of us. Some of the corner cases (e.g. data being
arbitrarily buffered into, or split between, packets causing problems
with blocking reads, or neo-jumbo packets being silently swallowed) are
never going to be described by the language documentation.
