TFPHTTPCLIENT iotimeout how to use?
« on: August 21, 2017, 06:52:38 pm »
Is iotimeout:= to the number of seconds a time out will occur in or ms or is it a off and on option 1 means it will timeout...

I can find no to little doc on it.

It is simply delegated to underlying TInetSocket instance, which in turn calls setsockopt with that value for both SO_RCVTIMEO and SO_SNDTIMEO. The corresponding code:
Code: Pascal  [Select]
  1.   {$ifdef windows}
  2.   opt := AValue;
  3.   E:=fpsetsockopt(Handle, SOL_SOCKET, SO_RCVTIMEO, @opt, 4)<>0;
  4.   if not E then
  5.     E:=fpsetsockopt(Handle, SOL_SOCKET, SO_SNDTIMEO, @opt, 4)<>0;
  6.   {$endif windows}
  7.   {$ifdef unix}
  8.   time.tv_sec:=avalue div 1000;
  9.   time.tv_usec:=(avalue mod 1000) * 1000;
  10.   E:=fpsetsockopt(Handle, SOL_SOCKET, SO_RCVTIMEO, @time, sizeof(time))<>0;
  11.   if not E then
  12.     E:=fpsetsockopt(Handle, SOL_SOCKET, SO_SNDTIMEO, @time, sizeof(time))<>0;
  13.   {$endif}
  14.   if E then
  15.     Raise ESocketError.Create(seIOTimeout,[AValue]);
Reading it (unix part) easily says that the value is in milliseconds unit. Windows one although differs in parameter, behaves the same (find SO_SNDTIMEO in this page).

We still lack documentation for a lot of (DRY supporting) things, but the source code is there and won't lie, so you can always inspect it yourself.
