<accepting device number>: Long

Examples

EXAMPLE

Accept(#1,65456)

EXAMPLE - Since Version 4.0.14:

Dim X as long = 2

OpenSocket Options=1 as #1 ‘explicit socket open for listening for port

while TRUE

OpenSocket Options=1 as #X ‘explicit socket open for listening accepting a new  connection

Accept(#1, #X, 6002)

X=X+1

End while

Where:

  • Listening device is permanent and bound to the port. It can be closed only when listener is terminated.
  • Accepting device[x] is created each time a listener creates new server task.
  • Application cannot close accepting device[x] when it is accepting.
