socket_set_block — Sets blocking mode on a socket resource
The socket_set_block() function removes the O_NONBLOCK flag on the socket specified by the socket parameter.
When an operation (e.g. receive, send, connect, accept, ...) is performed on a blocking socket, the script will pause its execution until it receives a signal or it can perform the operation.
Returns TRUE on success or FALSE on failure.
Example #1 socket_set_block() example
$socket = socket_create_listen(1223);
This example creates a listening socket on all interfaces on port 1223 and sets the socket to O_BLOCK mode. socket_accept() will hang until there is a connection to accept.
