|BIO_S_SOCKET(3)||Library Functions Manual||BIO_S_SOCKET(3)|
const BIO_METHOD *
BIO_s_socket() returns the socket BIO method. This is a wrapper around the platform's socket routines.
If the close flag is set, then the socket is shut down and closed when the BIO is freed.
BIO_new_socket() returns a socket BIO
using sock and close_flag.
Socket BIOs also support any relevant functionality of file descriptor BIOs.
The reason for having separate file descriptor and socket BIOs is that on some platforms, sockets are not file descriptors and use distinct I/O routines. Windows is one such platform. Any code mixing the two will not work on all platforms.
BIO_s_socket() returns the socket BIO method.
BIO_new_socket() returns the newly
allocated BIO or
NULL if an error occurred.
BIO_s_socket() first appeared in SSLeay 0.6.0.
BIO_new_socket() first appeared in SSLeay 0.8.0. Both functions have been available since OpenBSD 2.4.
