ZMQ_RECVMSG(3)			  0MQ Manual			ZMQ_RECVMSG(3)

NAME
       zmq_recvmsg - receive a message part from a socket

SYNOPSIS
       int zmq_recvmsg (void *socket, zmq_msg_t	*msg, int flags);

DESCRIPTION
       The zmq_recvmsg() function shall	receive	a message part from the	socket
       referenced by the socket	argument and store it in the message
       referenced by the msg argument. Any content previously stored in	msg
       shall be	properly deallocated. If there are no message parts available
       on the specified	socket the zmq_recvmsg() function shall	block until
       the request can be satisfied. The flags argument	is a combination of
       the flags defined below:

       ZMQ_DONTWAIT
	   Specifies that the operation	should be performed in non-blocking
	   mode. If there are no messages available on the specified socket,
	   the zmq_recvmsg() function shall fail with errno set	to EAGAIN.

	   Note
	   this	API method is deprecated in favor of zmq_msg_recv(3).

   Multi-part messages
       A 0MQ message is	composed of 1 or more message parts. Each message part
       is an independent zmq_msg_t in its own right. 0MQ ensures atomic
       delivery	of messages: peers shall receive either	all message parts of a
       message or none at all. The total number	of message parts is unlimited
       except by available memory.

       An application that processes multi-part	messages must use the
       ZMQ_RCVMORE zmq_getsockopt(3) option after calling zmq_recvmsg()	to
       determine if there are further parts to receive.

RETURN VALUE
       The zmq_recvmsg() function shall	return number of bytes in the message
       if successful. Otherwise	it shall return	-1 and set errno to one	of the
       values defined below.

ERRORS
       EAGAIN
	   Non-blocking	mode was requested and no messages are available at
	   the moment.

       ENOTSUP
	   The zmq_recvmsg() operation is not supported	by this	socket type.

       EFSM
	   The zmq_recvmsg() operation cannot be performed on this socket at
	   the moment due to the socket	not being in the appropriate state.
	   This	error may occur	with socket types that switch between several
	   states, such	as ZMQ_REP. See	the messaging patterns section of
	   zmq_socket(3) for more information.

       ETERM
	   The 0MQ context associated with the specified socket	was
	   terminated.

       ENOTSOCK
	   The provided	socket was invalid.

       EINTR
	   The operation was interrupted by delivery of	a signal before	a
	   message was available.

       EFAULT
	   The message passed to the function was invalid.

EXAMPLE
       Receiving a message from	a socket.

	   /* Create an	empty 0MQ message */
	   zmq_msg_t msg;
	   int rc = zmq_msg_init (&msg);
	   assert (rc == 0);
	   /* Block until a message is available to be received	from socket */
	   rc =	zmq_recvmsg (socket, &msg, 0);
	   assert (rc != -1);
	   /* Release message */
	   zmq_msg_close (&msg);

       Receiving a multi-part message.

	   int more;
	   size_t more_size = sizeof (more);
	   do {
	       /* Create an empty 0MQ message to hold the message part */
	       zmq_msg_t part;
	       int rc =	zmq_msg_init (&part);
	       assert (rc == 0);
	       /* Block	until a	message	is available to	be received from socket	*/
	       rc = zmq_recvmsg	(socket, &part,	0);
	       assert (rc != -1);
	       /* Determine if more message parts are to follow	*/
	       rc = zmq_getsockopt (socket, ZMQ_RCVMORE, &more,	&more_size);
	       assert (rc == 0);
	       zmq_msg_close (&part);
	   } while (more);
