HANDLE _NutFdToHandle(int fd);
The _NutFdToHandle() function returns the Win32 file
handle associated with the specified NuTCRACKER Platform file descriptor.
This is useful when integrating NuTCRACKER Platform code with Win32 native code, as the
resulting handle can be used with Win32 API functions.
The returned handle should not be closed with CloseHandle().
The underlying handle is closed by the NuTCRACKER Platform when close()
is called on the file descriptor (either explicitly or when the process exits).
Be careful when sharing handles between NuTCRACKER Platform and Win32 code.
When the Win32 code change settings on the underlying object (for example,
calls ioctl() on a socket handle obtained from a NuTCRACKER Platform
socket file descriptor), the NuTCRACKER Platform is unaware of those changes, and
program behavior for that handle/file descriptor is undefined.
Unless the handle and file descriptor are being shared simply for
I/O operations, and not control operations, once the handle has
been used in Win32 code, the corresponding file descriptor should
not be used further in NuTCRACKER Platform code. This issue is especially
important for sockets, because the NuTCRACKER Platform needs to manipulate the settings of
WinSock sockets to ensure that socket operations are correctly
Is the file descriptor whose corresponding handle is to be returned.
If successful, _NutFdToHandle()
returns the Win32 file handle corresponding to the specified file
descriptor. On failure, it returns a value of INVALID_HANDLE_VALUE
and sets errno to one of the following values:
The specified file descriptor is not valid.
A signal interrupted the call.
