This starts off an asynchronous read. Upto <message_block->total_size()> will be read and stored in the <message_block>. <message_block>'s <wr_ptr> will be updated to reflect the added bytes if the read operation is successful completed. Return code of 1 means immediate success and <number_of_bytes_recvd> will contain number of bytes read. The <ACE_Handler::handle_read_dgram> method will still be called. Return code of 0 means the IO will complete proactively. Return code of -1 means there was an error, use errno to get the error code.

Scatter/gather is supported on WIN32 by using the <message_block->cont()> method. Up to ACE_IOV_MAX <message_block>'s are supported. Upto <message_block->size()> bytes will be read into each <message block>=""> for a total of <message_block->total_size()> bytes. All <message_block>'s <wr_ptr>'s will be updated to reflect the added bytes for each <message_block>

Priority of the operation is specified by <priority>. On POSIX4-Unix, this is supported. Works like <nice> in Unix. Negative values are not allowed. 0 means priority of the operation same as the process priority. 1 means priority of the operation is one less than process. And so forth. On Win32, <priority> is a no-op. <signal_number> is the POSIX4 real-time signal number to be used for the operation. <signal_number> ranges from ACE_SIGRTMIN to ACE_SIGRTMAX. This argument is a no-op on non-POSIX4 systems.

Implemented in ACE_POSIX_Asynch_Read_Dgram, and ACE_WIN32_Asynch_Read_Dgram.
