Module Tcp.Server

module Server: sig .. end
A Server.t represents a TCP server listening on a socket.

type ([< Import.Socket.Address.t ], 'listening_on) t 
type inet = (Import.Socket.Address.Inet.t, int) t 
type unix = (Import.Socket.Address.Unix.t, string) t 
val invariant : ([< Import.Socket.Address.t ], 'a) t -> unit
val listening_on : ([< Import.Socket.Address.t ], 'listening_on) t -> 'listening_on
val close : ([< Import.Socket.Address.t ], 'a) t -> unit Import.Deferred.t
close t starts closing the listening socket, and returns a deferred that becomes determined after Fd.close_finished fd on the socket's fd. It is guaranteed that t's client handler will never be called after close t. It is ok to call close multiple times on the same t; calls subsequent to the initial call will have no effect, but will return the same deferred as the original call.

close_finished becomes determined after Fd.close_finished fd on the socket's fd, i.e. the same deferred that close returns. close_finished differs from close in that it does not have the side effect of initiating a close.

is_closed t returns true iff close t has been called.

val close_finished : ([< Import.Socket.Address.t ], 'a) t -> unit Import.Deferred.t
val is_closed : ([< Import.Socket.Address.t ], 'a) t -> bool

create where_to_listen handler starts a server listening to a socket as specified by where_to_listen. It returns a server once the socket is ready to accept connections. The server calls handler (address, reader, writer) for each client that connects. If the deferred returned by handler is ever determined, or handler raises an exception, then reader and writer are closed.

max_pending_connections is the maximum number of clients that can have a connection pending, as with Unix.Socket.listen. Additional connections will be rejected.

max_connections is the maximum number of clients that can be connected simultaneously. The server will not call accept unless the number of clients is less than max_connections, although of course potential clients can have a connection pending.

buffer_age_limit passes on to the underlying writer option of the same name.

on_handler_error determines what happens if the handler throws an exception. The default is `Raise. If an exception is raised by on_handler_error (either explicitely via `Raise, or in the closure passed to `Call) no further connections will be accepted.

The server will stop accepting and close the listening socket when an error handler raises (either via `Raise or `Call f where f raises), or if close is called.
