[zeromq-dev] Empty message does not close ZMQ_STREAM socket?

ZMQ_STREAM sockets are special and do not follow the normal behavior w.r.t ZMQ_SNDMORE. You always have to send two messages, the first one is discarded as the identity frame. If you omit ZMQ_SNDMORE once, you will not be able to send any messages over the socket again.

I also tried with and without ZMQ_SNDMORE for the empty message. It does not make a difference, but sending it twice does.

If I am completely off here, please let me know (still learning ZMQ):

    server.send(id, ZMQ_SNDMORE);
    server.send(empty, ZMQ_SNDMORE );

But I don't think you should have the ZMQ_SENDMORE flag on the second send() call.

Otherwise the message will not be sent, instead waiting for another call to send() without the flag which only then commits the message to be sent by underlying code.
