libssh2_channel_handle_extended_data — set extended data handling mode


#include <libssh2.h>

void  libssh2_channel_handle_extended_data(LIBSSH2_CHANNEL *channel, int ignore_mode);


This function is deprecated. Use the libssh2_channel_handle_extended_data2(3) function instead!

channel - Active channel stream to change extended data handling on.

ignore_mode - One of the three LIBSSH2_CHANNEL_EXTENDED_DATA_* Constants.
LIBSSH2_CHANNEL_EXTENDED_DATA_NORMAL: Queue extended data for eventual  reading
LIBSSH2_CHANNEL_EXTENDED_DATA_MERGE: Treat extended data and ordinary data the same. Merge all substreams such that calls to libssh2_channel_read(3) will pull from all substreams on a first-in/first-out basis.
LIBSSH2_CHANNEL_EXTENDED_DATA_IGNORE: Discard all extended data as it  arrives.

Change how a channel deals with extended data packets. By default all extended data is queued until read by libssh2_channel_read_ex(3)
