Hello, I am trying to write some code in R to communicate over sockets via the STOMP protocol (http://stomp.codehaus.org/Protocol).
As you can see, a null byte (ASCII 0) is used as the "over" signal. I'd like to be able to do something like this: write.socket(socket, "CONNECT\nlogin: me\npasscode: pass\n\n\000") However, R does not like it when you put "\000" in a string: > "\000" Error: embedded nul in string: '\0' I thought perhaps that write.socket would automatically send a null byte, but it doesn't appear to. I'm getting similar results with socketConnection() and writeLines(). I thought that writeBin() might be the solution but it gives me: Error in writeBin(n, con) : can only write to a binary connection I'm not clear how to make my socket a binary connection. I am only going to be writing strings, with the exception of these null bytes. Can anyone suggest a method for doing this?
