GETSOCKNAME(3XNET) X/Open Networking Services Library Functions


NAME


getsockname - get the socket name

SYNOPSIS


cc [ flag ... ] file ... -lxnet [ library ... ]
#include <sys/socket.h>

int getsockname(int socket, struct sockaddr *restrict address,
socklen_t *restrict address_len);


DESCRIPTION


The getsockname() function retrieves the locally-bound name of the
specified socket, stores this address in the sockaddr structure pointed
to by the address argument, and stores the length of this address in the
object pointed to by the address_len argument.


If the actual length of the address is greater than the length of the
supplied sockaddr structure, the stored address will be truncated.


If the socket has not been bound to a local name, the value stored in the
object pointed to by address is unspecified.

RETURN VALUES


Upon successful completion, 0 is returned, the address argument points to
the address of the socket, and the address_len argument points to the
length of the address. Otherwise, -1 is returned and errno is set to
indicate the error.

ERRORS


The getsockname() function will fail:

EBADF
The socket argument is not a valid file descriptor.


EFAULT
The address or address_len parameter can not be accessed
or written.


ENOTSOCK
The socket argument does not refer to a socket.


EOPNOTSUPP
The operation is not supported for this socket's protocol.


The getsockname() function may fail if:

EINVAL
The socket has been shut down.


ENOBUFS
Insufficient resources were available in the system to
complete the call.


ENOSR
There were insufficient STREAMS resources available for the
operation to complete.
