data: aByteArray
Answer a new datagram with the specified data.


data: aByteArray address: ipAddress port: port
Answer a new datagram with the specified target socket, and aByteArray as its data.


object: object address: ipAddress port: port
Serialize the object onto a ByteArray, and create a Datagram with the object as its contents, and the specified receiver. Note that each invocation of this method creates a separate ObjectDumper; if different objects that you're sending are likely to contain references to the same objects, you should use #object:objectDumper:address:port:.


object: object objectDumper: od address: ipAddress port: port
Serialize the object onto a ByteArray, and create a Datagram with the object as its contents, and the specified receiver. Serialization takes place through ObjectDumper passed as `od', and the stream attached to the ObjectDumper is resetted every time. Using this method is indicated if different objects that you're sending are likely to contain references to the same objects.
