Socket Connection wrapper shared library

Shared library that realize sockets connections and could transfer data-packages.

Navigation

Installation:


Compile from source

  • git clone https://github.com/DGolgovsky/sock_connect.git clone git repository
  • cd sock_connect change directory to cloned repo-dir
  • ./ci-build.sh -r compile latest release version
  • also you can use ./ci-build.sh -h for print help information for another variations of building
  • cd build jump to directory with compiled objects
  • sudo make install install library as root

Package provides headers installs at /usr/include and .so library, puts to /usr/lib

Usage:


  • Include header in your source files where do you need it.
#include <sock_connect.h>
  • Compile with -lsock_connect

Variations:


  1. Connection with TCP transmission
    • auto tcp = std::make_shared<Connector<TCP>>(IP, PORT);
  2. Connection with UDP transmission
    • auto udp = std::make_shared<Connector<UDP>>(INADDR_ANY, PORT);
  3. Connection with UNIX-domain sockets transmission
    • auto unix = std::make_shared<Connector<UNIX>>(sun_path);
  4. Connection with USB transmission
    • auto usb = std::make_shared<Connector<USB>>(dev_path, speed);
  5. DEPRECATED Transform const char* ip-addr 192.168.1.42 to uint32_t
    • uint32_t IP = ip_to_int(argv[1]);

Examples:


  • Receiving TCP as client:
uint16_t msg = 0;
auto recv_sz = sizeof(uint16_t);

/* Create new socket connection */
auto tcp = std::make_shared<Connector<TCP>>(IP, PORT);
while (tcp->Status()) {
    // While tcp establish connection to server
    if (tcp->Connect()) {
        // While data receiving do something with it
        // if tcp connection lost tcp->Receive returns false
        while (tcp->Receive(&msg, recv_sz)) {
            // do_something with received data
            // ...
        }
        // Trying reconnect if connection lost
        tcp.reset(new Connector<TCP>(IP, PORT));
    }
}
  • Receiving TCP as multi-server:
template<class T>
void handler(T tcp, int client_id) {
    tcp->assign_thread(client_id);
    uint16_t msg = 0;
    auto recv_sz = sizeof(uint16_t);
    while ((tcp->Receive(&msg, recv_sz))) {
        // do_something with received message
        // ...
    }
    tcp->Shutdown(client_id);
}

/* Used if [this] - recv server */
void receiver()
{
    /* Creating new connection */
    auto tcp = std::make_shared<Connector<TCP>>(IP, PORT);

    tcp->Bind(false); /* You can use it as TCP->Bind(); for bind && listen */
    tcp->Listen(); /* You may don't need this part if you bind with (true) option */

    int client_id = 0;
    while ((client_id = tcp->Accept()) > 0) {
        /* Accepting new connections and start receiving with the new thread */
        std::thread thread(handler<decltype(tcp)>, tcp, client_id);
        thread.detach();
    }
}
  • Sending TCP as client to server, broadcasting UDP:
auto tcp = std::make_shared<Connector<TCP>>(INADDR_LOOPBACK, PORT); // 127.0.0.1
auto udp = std::make_shared<Connector<UDP>>(INADDR_ANY, PORT); // 0.0.0.0

uint16_t msg = 0;
auto msg_sz = sizeof(uint16_t);

// Infinite loop. This allow execute tcp_sender as daemon
while (true) {
    if (tcp->Connect()) {
        // If connection successful,
        // send data while Status() returns true
        while (tcp->Status()) {
            msg = rand() % 50; // Generate random data
            if (msg) {
                // Trying to send message
                // Continue if sending is failure,
                // Also tcp->Status() will return false
                if (!tcp->Send(&msg, msg_sz)) continue;
                // Send udp package
                udp->Send(&msg, msg_sz);                
            }
        }
        // Reconnecting if connection lost
        tcp.reset(new Connector<TCP>(INADDR_LOOPBACK, PORT));
    }
}
