Manpage of GETSOCKNAME

GETSOCKNAME

Index
 

NAME

getsockname - get socket name  

SYNOPSIS

#include <sys/socket.h>

int getsockname(int s, struct sockaddr *name, socklen_t *namelen);
 

DESCRIPTION

Getsockname returns the current name for the specified socket. The namelen parameter should be initialized to indicate the amount of space pointed to by name. On return it contains the actual size of the name returned (in bytes).  

RETURN VALUE

On success, zero is returned. On error, -1 is returned, and errno is set appropriately.  

ERRORS

EBADF
The argument s is not a valid descriptor.
ENOTSOCK
The argument s is a file, not a socket.
ENOBUFS
Insufficient resources were available in the system to perform the operation.
EFAULT
The name parameter points to memory not in a valid part of the process address space.
 

CONFORMING TO

SVr4, 4.4BSD (the getsockname function call appeared in 4.2BSD). SVr4 documents additional ENOMEM and ENOSR error codes.  

NOTE

The third argument of getsockname is in reality an `int *' (and this is what BSD 4.* and libc4 and libc5 have). Some POSIX confusion resulted in the present socklen_t. The draft standard has not been adopted yet, but glibc2 already follows it and also has socklen_t. See also accept(2).

bind(2), socket(2)
