Functions

numbytes (num)

Return a function that allows delimiting at a certain number of bytes.



Functions

numbytes (num)

Return a function that allows delimiting at a certain number of bytes.

This function can be used to get a buffered version of sock:receive_bytes(n) in case a script requires more than one fixed-size chunk, as the unbuffered version may return more bytes than requested and thus would require you to do the parsing on your own.

The keeppattern parameter to receive_buf should be set to true, otherwise the string returned will be 1 less than num

Parameters

  • num: Number of bytes.

Usage:

sock:receive_buf(match.numbytes(80), true)
