Manual Reference Pages  -  LIBOWFAT_IO_SETCOOKIE (3)

NAME

io_setcookie - associate cookie with descriptor

CONTENTS

Syntax
Description

SYNTAX

#include <io.h>

void io_setcookie(int64 fd,void* cookie);

DESCRIPTION

io_setcookie associates a cookie (pointer to some anonymous data structure) with this descriptor. Only one cookie can be associated with a descriptor.

Use io_getcookie(3) to retrieve the cookie for a descriptor (usually after io_canread or io_canwrite brought it to your attention).

Please note that io_close does not deallocate your cookie. You need to do that yourself.

The idea is that you put the state associated with a TCP connection you serve in a common struct. Then you do not need to have your own data structure to retrieve the state for a connection, you can just use the data structure io_wait already maintains. The lookup works in constant time and should not cause any cache misses.
