Which examples are you referring to?

> I've set up and adapted the single threaded Acceptor Connector
> framework to fit my initial needs.
> Its works well. But once I try to read from the standard input stream
> in the the client Connector's handle_timeout, I get unpredictable
> behavior.
> Stated again, I get the Connector Acceptor to work perfectly. Then I
> drop the following 3 lines of code into the Connector's
> handle_timeout().
>	string test.
>	cin >> test;
>	cout << test << endl;
> And even though I don't do anything with the "test" string it breaks
> the working code: the Acceptor starts receiving messed up packets on
> the Socket.
> I'm expecting someone to tell me that I can't interact with the C++
> input stream inside the Connector framework.
> Below is information on my development environment.

To ensure that we have proper version/platform/compiler information,
please make sure you fill out the appropriate problem report form
(PRF), which is in


or in


in older versions of ACE+TAO.  Make sure to include this information
when asking any questions about ACE+TAO since otherwise we have to
"guess" what version/platform/compiler/options you've using, which is
very error-prone and slows down our responsiveness.  If you don't use
the PRF, therefore, it is less likely that someone from the core
ACE+TAO developer team will be able to answer your question.
Naturally, we encourage and appreciate other members of the ACE+TAO
user community who can respond to questions that they have the answers
