Function Documentation

lo_method lo_server_thread_add_method (lo_server_thread st, const char * path, const char * typespec, lo_method_handler h, const void * user_data)

Add an OSC method to the specifed server thread.

Parameters

st The server thread the method is to be added to.
path The OSC path to register the method to. If NULL is passed the method will match all paths.
typespec The typespec the method accepts. Incoming messages with similar typespecs (e.g. ones with numerical types in the same position) will be coerced to the typespec given here.
h The method handler callback function that will be called it a matching message is received
user_data A value that will be passed to the callback function, h, when its invoked matching from this method.

int lo_server_thread_del_lo_method (lo_server_thread st, lo_method m)

Delete an OSC method from the specified server thread.

Parameters

s The server thread the method is to be removed from.
m The lo_method identifier returned from lo_server_add_method for the method to delete from the server.

Returns

Non-zero if it was not found in the list of methods for the server.

void lo_server_thread_del_method (lo_server_thread st, const char * path, const char * typespec)

Delete an OSC method from the specifed server thread.

Parameters

st The server thread the method is to be removed from.
path The OSC path of the method to delete. If NULL is passed the method will match the generic handler.
typespec The typespec the method accepts.

int lo_server_thread_events_pending (lo_server_thread st)

Return true if there are scheduled events (eg. from bundles) waiting to be dispatched by the thread.

void lo_server_thread_free (lo_server_thread st)

Free memory taken by a server thread. Frees the memory, and, if currently running will stop the associated thread.

int lo_server_thread_get_port (lo_server_thread st)

Return the port number that the server thread has bound to.

lo_server lo_server_thread_get_server (lo_server_thread st)

Return the lo_server for a lo_server_thread. This function is useful for passing a thread's lo_server to lo_send_from().

char* lo_server_thread_get_url (lo_server_thread st)

Return a URL describing the address of the server thread. Return value must be free()'d to reclaim memory.

lo_server_thread lo_server_thread_new (const char * port, lo_err_handler err_h)

Create a new server thread to handle incoming OSC messages. Server threads take care of the message reception and dispatch by transparently creating a system thread to handle incoming messages. Use this if you do not want to handle the threading yourself.

Parameters

port If NULL is passed then an unused port will be chosen by the system, its number may be retrieved with lo_server_thread_get_port() so it can be passed to clients. Otherwise a decimal port number, service name or UNIX domain socket path may be passed.
err_h A function that will be called in the event of an error being raised. The function prototype is defined in lo_types.h

lo_server_thread lo_server_thread_new_from_url (const char * url, lo_err_handler err_h)

Create a new server thread, taking port and the optional multicast group IP from an URL string.

Parameters

url The URL to specify the server parameters.
err_h An error callback function that will be called if there is an error in messge reception or server creation. Pass NULL if you do not want error handling.

Returns

A new lo_server_thread instance.

lo_server_thread lo_server_thread_new_multicast (const char * group, const char * port, lo_err_handler err_h)

Create a new server thread to handle incoming OSC messages, and join a UDP multicast group. Server threads take care of the message reception and dispatch by transparently creating a system thread to handle incoming messages. Use this if you do not want to handle the threading yourself.

Parameters

group The multicast group to join. See documentation on IP multicast for the acceptable address range; e.g., http://tldp.org/HOWTO/Multicast-HOWTO-2.html
port If NULL is passed then an unused port will be chosen by the system, its number may be retrieved with lo_server_thread_get_port() so it can be passed to clients. Otherwise a decimal port number, service name or UNIX domain socket path may be passed.
err_h A function that will be called in the event of an error being raised. The function prototype is defined in lo_types.h

lo_server_thread lo_server_thread_new_multicast_iface (const char * group, const char * port, const char * iface, const char * ip, lo_err_handler err_h)

Create a new server thread instance, and join a UDP multicast group, optionally specifying which network interface to use. Note that usually only one of iface or ip are specified.

Parameters

group The multicast group to join. See documentation on IP multicast for the acceptable address range; e.g., http://tldp.org/HOWTO/Multicast-HOWTO-2.html
port If using UDP then NULL may be passed to find an unused port. Otherwise a decimal port number or service name or may be passed. If using UNIX domain sockets then a socket path should be passed here.
iface A string specifying the name of a network interface to use, or zero if not specified.
ip A string specifying the IP address of a network interface to use, or zero if not specified.
err_h An error callback function that will be called if there is an error in messge reception or server creation. Pass NULL if you do not want error handling.

lo_server_thread lo_server_thread_new_with_proto (const char * port, int proto, lo_err_handler err_h)

Create a new server thread to handle incoming OSC messages, specifying protocol. Server threads take care of the message reception and dispatch by transparently creating a system thread to handle incoming messages. Use this if you do not want to handle the threading yourself.

Parameters

port If NULL is passed then an unused port will be chosen by the system, its number may be retrieved with lo_server_thread_get_port() so it can be passed to clients. Otherwise a decimal port number, service name or UNIX domain socket path may be passed.
proto The protocol to use, should be one of LO_UDP, LO_TCP or LO_UNIX.
err_h A function that will be called in the event of an error being raised. The function prototype is defined in lo_types.h

void lo_server_thread_pp (lo_server_thread st)

Pretty-print a lo_server_thread object.

void lo_server_thread_set_callbacks (lo_server_thread st, lo_server_thread_init_callback init, lo_server_thread_cleanup_callback cleanup, void * user_data)

Set an init and/or a cleanup function to the specifed server thread. To have any effect, it must be called before the server thread is started.

Parameters

st The server thread to which the method is to be added.
init The init function to be called just after thread start. May be NULL.
cleanup The cleanup function to be called just before thread exit. May be NULL.
user_data A value that will be passed to the callback functions.

int lo_server_thread_start (lo_server_thread st)

Start the server thread.

Parameters

st the server thread to start.

Returns

Less than 0 on failure, 0 on success.

int lo_server_thread_stop (lo_server_thread st)

Stop the server thread.

Parameters

st the server thread to start.

Returns

Less than 0 on failure, 0 on success.
