Sinking Data

Sometimes it is desirable to ignore all incoming data while still maintaining the connection opened. The sock.sinkdata property allows you to do just that.

Set the sock.sinkdata to 1- YES, and all incoming data will be automatically discarded. This means that the on_sock_data_arrival event will not be generated, reading sock.rxlen will always be returning zero, and so on. No data will be reaching its destination even in case of buffer redirection . Inband commands , however, will still be extracted from the incoming data stream and processed. Sock.connectiontout and sock.toutcounter will work correctly as well.
