By default, TCP connections wait a small fixed interval before actually sending data, in order to permit small packets to be combined. This algorithm is named after its inventor, John Nagle, and is often referred to as 'Nagling'.
While this reduces network resource utilization in these situations, it imposes a delay on all outgoing message data, which can cause problems in client/server situations.
This function allows this feature to be disabled (de-Nagling,
value=TRUE) or enabled (Nagling,
value=FALSE) for the
The character string "SUCCESS" will be returned invisible if the operation was succesful. On failure, an error will be generated.
