%tcp-passive-open calls %tcp-control to invoke the MacTCP driver.
%tcp-control does not return until the command is completed. It does this
in the loop:
(when (eql (setq err (#_control :async pb)) 0)
(let* ((*interrupt-level* 0))
(while (> (setq err (rref pb tcpioPB.ioResult)) 0))))
If you create a version of %tcp-passive-open that calls your own function,
an asynchronous version of %tcp-control (i.e., without the wait loop), then
you can poll tcpioPB.ioResult yourself (= 0 ==> done, < 0 ==> error, > 0
If you are using tcp-streams, then there is some more work required.
initialize-instance of tcp-stream does a (#_DisposPtr pb) after calling
%tcp-passive-open with pb. This won't work with async passive_open; you'll
need to conditionalize it. Perhaps:
(when (and pb (not async)) ; was pb
(unless (ccl:%null-ptr-p (rref pb tcpioPB.StreamPtr))
(%tcp-control pb $TCPRelease T))
where async is a new keyword arg (default nil) which would also be used to
select your new %tcp-passive-open-async.
As an aside: it looks wrong to me to call (%tcp-control pb $TCPRelease T)
in initialize-instance even in the sync case. My understanding is that
this should only be called by stream-close after closing the stream (it
[ TCPCreate [ TCPOpen [ send/receive ] ... TCPClose ] ... TCPRelease ]
Anybody know why the $TCPRelease is there?
