NAME

nn_device - start a device

CONTENTS

SYNOPSIS

#include <nanomsg/nn.h>

int nn_device (int s1, int s2);

DESCRIPTION

Starts a device to forward messages between two sockets. If both sockets are valid, nn_device function loops and sends and messages received from s1 to s2 and vice versa. If only one socket is valid and the other is negative, nn_device works in a "loopback" mode — it loops and sends any messages received from the socket back to itself.

To break the loop and make nn_device function exit use nn_term(3) function.

RETURN VALUE

The function loops until it hits an error. In such case it returns -1 and sets errno to one of the values defined below.

ERRORS

EBADF

One of the provided sockets is invalid.

EINVAL

Either one of the socket is not an AF_SP_RAW socket; or the two sockets don\(cqt belong to the same protocol; or the directionality of the sockets doesn\(cqt fit (e.g. attempt to join two SINK sockets to form a device).

EINTR

The operation was interrupted by delivery of a signal.

ETERM

The library is terminating.

EXAMPLE

int s1 = nn_socket (AF_SP_RAW, NN_REQ);
nn_bind (s1, "tcp://127.0.0.1:5555");
int s2 = nn_socket (AF_SP_RAW, NN_REP);
nn_bind (s2, "tcp://127.0.0.1:5556");
nn_device (s1, s2);
