what is the problem with using Synapse, LNet or Indy? Seen the questions
you are asking I would suggest you use an existing library and stay away
from writing your own socket library or start with learning the basics
of socket programming.
SOCK_STREAM sockets are full duplex and you can read and write
simultaneously on them, even without threading if you use non blocking
mode. SSocket has a Property NonBlocking but I don't see any code that
handles the EAGAIN or EWOULDBLOCK errors. That is probably left to the
user of TSocketStream to deal with. So SSocket is a really thin layer
that leaves the user with all the problems you are trying to solve.
