[ee122] question about buffer

how do we handle the buffer?
I mean, we have our windowsize, and whenever we receive a packet, we
free the window slot and we copy the data to some buffer. Whenever
somebody calls myreceive, we return the content of that buffer.
Here's the questions:
1 - do we return the content of the buffer if and only if we received
all the packages, so the buffer is not a partial transmission?
2 - what do we do if somebody is sending a crazy amount of data (ex
1tb)? that can't obviously be stored in a buffer?
