select and FD_ISSET problem
Posted on 1997-03-24
I have two processes running A,B. I send B a message from A, which it receiveds, but when FD_ISSET checks the sock descriptor if more data is there, it states yes. when my code trys a read the result is nothing.
The problem is why does FD_ISSET still think data is there.
The buffer is large enought to hold the data, and the message is received correctly and succesfully.
An attempt to FD_CLR() does not clear the sock des.
I'm, using SunOS 4.1. Unix, not Linux.
Why does the same thing happen when I create and close a socket ?
