.TH socket_quickack 3
.SH NAME
socket_quickack \- turn TCP Quick ACK mode on or off
.SH SYNTAX
.B #include <libowfat/socket.h>
int \fBsocket_quickack\fP(int \fIs\fR,int \fIvalue\fR);
.SH DESCRIPTION
socket_quickack switches TCP Quick ACK mode on (value=1) or off
(value=0). If the platform does not support this functionality, returns
-1 and sets errno to ENOPROTOOPT (or ENOSYS if the platform does not
define ENOPROTOOPT).
TCP Quick ACK mode is on by default because the operating system has to
assume it's an interactive connection. In that case, an ACK will be
sent quickly after data came in. If your code handles non-interactive
server connections, it may make sense to switch Quick ACK mode off,
telling the kernel to delay sending ACKs because the server is going to
respond to incoming requests anyway, so the ACK can be piggy-backed onto
that response, saving useless network traffic.
Normally socket_quickack returns 0. If anything goes wrong, socket_quickack
returns -1, setting errno appropriately.
.SH EXAMPLE
#include <libowfat/socket.h>
int \fIs\fR;
char \fIip\fR[4];
uint16 \fIp\fR;
\fIs\fR = socket_tcp4b();
socket_quickack(s);
socket_bind4_reuse(s,ip,p);
socket_listen(16);
