Flushing of the tcp socket

Hi to all,

I would like to flush the datas in a tcp socket connection, however in the package socket I haven't found any function to do this work. I was thinking of opening and closing the socket each time I need a flush, but this doesn't seem to me the perfect solution. Do you have anything to suggest? Thanks in advance

Regards,
Daniele

AFAIK, you don't need to flush a socket.

AFAIK, you don't need to flush a socket.
I'll explain better my situation: I want to receive, for example, only 10 bytes, but the device I have on the other side of the connection sends me 20 bytes. If I take only 10 bytes when I do the next receive I don't get the new 10 bytes, but the previous ones sent by the device which were part of the group of 20 bytes sent the first time.

I would like to use a flush, because when I read the first 10 bytes I can then discard the remaining 10.

hmm...without looking at your code, i can only guess :) the read() method can take in number of bytes read. maybe you want to try that. or else the other good ppl here can help you later..
