I'm wondering if it's possible to open a unix domain socket with
SOCK_SEQPACKET in Racket? It looks like currently unix-socket-lib uses
SOCK_STREAM, and doesn't allow you to configure that flag. Is there a
reason for this, or would it be a good idea to add this feature to the
unix-socket-lib library? I would rather not issue the C FFI calls
myself, because non-blocking IO is fairly difficult to do correctly from
my previous impressions with it.
SOCK_SEQPACKET sockets don't match Racket's port interface, which
doesn't have a notion of message boundaries, so you'd have to work
around that interface mismatch. Also, the unix-socket library reuses
Racket's implementation of ports backed by file descriptors. To support
SOCK_SEQPACKET, it would need a different implementation of read and
write that preserved message boundaries.
So it would be possible, but it's a fair amount of work, and no one
seems to have really needed SOCK_SEQPACKET support yet.
