Detailed Description

Internal entity of a packet.

As everything is sent as a packet, all network communication will need to call the functions that populate the packet. Every packet can be at most SEND_MTU bytes. Overflowing this limit will give an assertion when sending (i.e. writing) the packet. Reading past the size of the packet when receiving will return all 0 values and "" in case of the string.

Member Function Documentation

◆ CanReadFromPacket()

bool Packet::CanReadFromPacket ( uint  bytes_to_read)

Is it safe to read from the packet, i.e.

didn't we run over the buffer ?

bytes_to_readThe amount of bytes we want to try to read.
True if that is safe, otherwise false.
