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


DESCRIPTION


getpeername() returns the name of the peer connected to socket s. The
int pointed to by 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), prior to any truncation. The name
is truncated if the buffer provided is too small.

RETURN VALUES


If successful, getpeername() returns 0; otherwise it returns -1 and sets
errno to indicate the error.
