Some testing showed that the maximum package (load) size of
boost::asio::write/read() for a TCP socket seems to be 1007 kB

Subject: [asio] Sending large packages


Dear all,


Is there a well-defined way of sending large packages over TCP? Or do I have
to split the packages on my own? For explanation: I want to send images
(size around 6MB).


Best regards,
