Emacs Lisp programs can open TCP network connections to other processes on
the same machine or other machines. A network connection is handled by Lisp
much like a subprocess, and is represented by a process object.
However, the process you are communicating with is not a child of the
Emacs process, so you can't kill it or send it signals. All you can do
is send and receive data.
delete-process closes the connection,
but does not kill the process at the other end; that process must decide
what to do about closure of the connection.
You can distinguish process objects representing network connections
from those representing subprocesses with the
function. It always returns either
closed for a
network connection, and it never returns either of those values for a
real subprocess. See section 37.6 Process Information.
The name argument specifies the name for the process object. It is modified as necessary to make it unique.
The buffer-or-name argument is the buffer to associate with the
connection. Output from the connection is inserted in the buffer,
unless you specify a filter function to handle the output. If
nil, it means that the connection is not
associated with any buffer.
The arguments host and service specify where to connect to; host is the host name (a string), and service is the name of a defined network service (a string) or a port number (an integer).
