Quick sockets question

Hi,

I wonder if it is sufficient to use read/write methods on a TCP/
UNIXSocket object if all I need to do is just send
the data to and fro?

Does it handle partial reads/write situations internally?

As far as I understand, recvfrom is necessary when you need some
specific stuff, like out-of-band data?

Confused, because Pickaxe examples use recvfrom(), and not read().

Can someone explain?

Thanks.

Off the top of my head I believe #recvfrom is for UDP while you want
to do TCP. And yes, #write and #read should be sufficient.

Kind regards
