Send one or more data messages from this in one go.
messages must point to an array of OutputMessage structs and
messages.length must be the length of this array. Each OutputMessage
contains an address to send the data to, and a pointer to an array of OutputVector
structs to describe the buffers that the data to be sent for each message will be gathered from.
flags modify how the message is sent. The commonly available arguments for this are available in the
SocketMsgFlags enum, but the values there are the same as the system values, and
the flags are passed in as-is, so you can pass in system-specific flags too.
The other members of OutputMessage are treated as described in its documentation.
timeout is negative the call will block until
messages.length have been sent,
cancelled, or an error occurs.
timeout is 0 the call will send up to
messages.length without blocking, or will return
g_io_error_would_block if there is no space to send messages.
timeout is positive the call will block on the same conditions as if
timeout were negative. If the timeout is
reached before any messages are sent, g_io_error_timed_out is returned, otherwise it will return the number of
messages sent before timing out.
To be notified when messages can be sent, wait for the g_io_out condition. Note though that you may still receive g_io_error_would_block from send_messages even if you were previously notified of a g_io_out condition. (On Windows in particular, this is very common due to the way the underlying APIs work.)
On error -1 is returned and throws is set accordingly. An error will only be returned if zero messages could
be sent; otherwise the number of messages successfully sent before the error will be returned. If
cancellable is cancelled,
g_io_error_cancelled is returned as with any other error.
