Accessor: net/UDPSocketSender


This accessor sends UDP (datagram) messages to the specified destination address and port.

The send type can be any of those supported by the host. The list of supported types will be provided as options for the sendType parameter. For the Ptolemy II host, these include at least 'string', 'number', 'image', and a variety of numeric types.

Note that UDP, unlike TCP, has the notion of a "message" (a datagram). A message can contain more than one byte. The receiveType determines the type of the elements sent by this accessor
