What is the status of the isAlive function in sockets.js?
I saw this piece of documentation:
// We really should call _transport.isAlive (?) but that is never
// (either always false or always true).
// Experimentation shows that calls to available() or isAlive() will not
// stack has completely unwound.
and I noticed that when rajeev posted a fix for some socket behavior, it
included pulling out the isAlive call. (
http://mozdev.org/pipermail/jslib/2007-December/000917.html) Should isAlive
I'm trying to debug some odd behavior and am wondering if it is related to
this. Specifically, I have some code using sockets.js that shows this
when i run it repeatedly in jsliblive in Firefox, occasionally it hits a
streak where after the socket.open is called, socket.isAlive() fails. It
might do this 7 times, and then I will have a streak where it works
When we moved it out of Firefox and into a xulrunner app, it started failing
on isAlive() every time.
Any insight on the use of isAlive would be appreciated - and if you have any
ideas about the weird bug described above, please chime in!
