I'm using plain TCP with TWSocket and would like to send binary data. So far 
i've been sending text and used line mode, so I wonder how to handle binary 
One option would be to encode to say base64 and so still use line mode, but 
that would make data larger, so I'd prefer to send binary data directly. When 
sending I do know the size of data I'm about to send, so I guess I could use 
first few bytes to specify the length. The receiver would then use that to 
figure out how much to read till the end of the message.
This surely isn't a rare situation, so I assume there are usual ways to do it.
I would appreciate any suggestions or comments.
