GSNet Msg

Header

The header of the GSNet Msg contains the information necessary for quickly determining authenticity, type and length. Geometry Service's network library, libNetwork, is built upon BRL-CAD's networking library: libPKG. This causes the header byte layout to look like this:

Element Length Value
Magic1 int16 (2 Bytes) Always 0x41FE
Magic2 int16 (2 Bytes) Always 0x5309
MessageLength int32 (4 bytes)
MsgType int16 (2 bytes)
MessageUUID String (Variable bytes)
HasRegardingUUID Boolean (1 byte)
RegardingMessageUUID String (Variable bytes)
