Expand description

TCP/UDP/Unix bindings for tokio.

This module contains the TCP/UDP/Unix networking types, similar to the standard library, which can be used to implement networking protocols.


  • TcpListener and TcpStream provide functionality for communication over TCP
  • UdpSocket provides functionality for communication over UDP
  • UnixListener and UnixStream provide functionality for communication over a Unix Domain Stream Socket (available on Unix only)
  • UnixDatagram provides functionality for communication over Unix Domain Datagram Socket (available on Unix only)
