- Our implementation does not support AF_UNIX sockets.
Source socket_select(+TermsSockets, -NewTermsStreams, +TimeOut, +Streams, -ReadStreams) is det
The list of streams in Streams is checked for readable characters. A stream can be any stream associated with an I/O descriptor. The list ReadStreams returns the streams with readable data. socket_select/5 also waits for connections to the sockets specified by TermsSockets. This argument should be a list of Term-Socket pairs, where Term, which can be any term, is used as an identifier. NewTermsStreams is a list of Term-connection(Client,Stream) pairs, where Stream is a new stream open for communicating with a process connecting to the socket identified with Term, Client is the client host address (see socket_accept/3). If TimeOut is instantiated to off, the predicate waits until something is available. If TimeOut is S:U the predicate waits at most S seconds and U microseconds. Both S and U must be integers >=0. If there is a timeout, ReadStreams and NewTermsStreams are [].
Source current_host(-Host) is det
True when Host is an atom that denotes the name of the host.
Source hostname_address(+Host:atom, -Address:atom) is det
True when Address is the IP address of Host.
