The Socket Reader Stream is an input stream  which knows how to read from a BSD type socket. It is part of the Transport interface and may be registered as part of a Transport Object. The application can initialize this stream together with the HTWriter stream, for example. In the default initialization module, you can find the HTTransportInit() function which sets up this stream as a default transport for handling socket read operations.

This module is implemented by HTReader.c, and it is a part of the W3C Sample Code Library.

Input Buffering

In order to optimize reading a channel, we bind a buffer to each channel object. The size of this buffer is a compromise between speed and memory. Here it is chosen as the default TCP High Water Mark (sb_hiwat) for receiving data. By default, we have chosen a value that equals the normal TCP High Water Mark (sb_hiwat) for receiving data.

#define INPUT_BUFFER_SIZE    32*1024
