    Assume a tcp/ip connection between two Linux platforms established via
    the socket interface. The processes on the two platforms communicate
    through a file descriptor.
    Is it possible to simultaneously read and write on one socket file
    descriptor from 2 threads within the process, i.e. one thread reads
    data the other thread writes data at the same time on the same file descriptor ?

    Or will this screw up my data ?

    Thanks for advice.
