Ticket #10 (closed defect: duplicate)
Network.Socket.connect: support for sockets w/ bound local endpoints
|Reported by:||tibbe||Owned by:|
Just in case this isn't taken care of by the ongoing rewrite of 'network', but there's an age-old limitation in the implementation of Network.Socket.connect -- it balks at being given a socket where the local endpoint (port,iface) has already been bound.
i.e., it socket status test ought to be
not (currentStatus elem [NotConnected??,Bound])
The workaround of manually resetting SocketStatus?? always leaves me feeling icky.
