Hmm... maybe this is a dumb-question, or an unnecessary one, but I do want to cover it just-in-case. If the port-reader thread that is feeding data into Thread::Queue is terminated in this way, can we in fact be certain that the reader of that queue will in fact receive all of the data that has been sent? Do we indeed have the means to be certain that every single byte that the client may have transmitted to the port will in fact be accounted-for, even if the final transmission is incomplete? (I am thinking, not only of the bytes that have been posted into the queue, but also of any bytes that may have been queued-up in the read operation that we are about to shoot in the foot.)
“Just askin’ ...” ... but not entirely with an absence of motive or precedent. Sometime in my distant past, a project that i was involved in was very seriously bitten by a manifestation of exactly this kind of issue. Can we ... and I do not know this ... be c-e-r-t-a-i-n that this edge-case is covered?)
