28.4 Architecture and Internals

The base TCP agent (class Agent/TCP) is constructed as a collection of routines for sending packets, processing ACKs, managing the send window, and handling timeouts. Generally, each of these routines may be over-ridden by a function with the same name in a derived class (this is how many of the TCP sender variants are implemented).
