    Default Re: Sending files, images into streams.

    Well where are you stuck? There isn't much difference between sending a text message or sending binary data over a socket; the difficulty is in knowing when the transfer of bytes is finished. A trick I use is to first send a text message with the number of bytes in the file, which the receiving end can use to know when the entire file is read from the socket.
