is there any way to find out how much data is waiting on a given socket? my program reads 2 bytes from the socket to know how much more it needs to read. however, sometimes it reads those two bytes and pauses until the rest of the data comes in. i would like to know if the bytes are waiting before i read, so that if they are not, my program can continue and try to read it later. any ideas?
