[zeromq-dev] How to get transactions from bitcoind?

If it's blocked on socket.recv() it means you're not receiving anything,
because it will wait until the first message arrives. If you want to
receive stuff and print in a loop like the python code, you need to do it
roughly like this (I'm just typing in from memory, so there might be some
compiler errors here). Message can have lots parts, and in the C API, you
need to read all the parts, since there's no recv_multipart.

ZMQ subscriptions can also miss pub messages for a little while after
connected, so make sure your publisher is sending more than one thing.

while true {
  std::vector<std::string> msg_parts
  // Receive all message parts
  do {
     zmq::message_t msg_part;
     bool status = socket.recv(&msg_part, 0)
     // You should do error checking here.

     // Read data from msg_part, and stick it into a std::string then put
that into the part list
  } while (socket.getsockopt(ZMQ_RCVMORE))

  // msg_parts now contains all parts of the message.
  fprintf(stdout, "Received %d message parts\n", msg_parts.size())
