NAME

mtcp_getsockname − get socket name

SYNOPSIS

#include <mtcp_api.h>

int mtcp_getsockname(mctx_t mctx, int sockfd, struct sockaddr *addr, socklen_t *addrlen);

DESCRIPTION

mtcp_getsockname() returns the current address to which the socket sockfd is bound, in the buffer pointed to by addr. The addrlen argument should be initialized to indicate the amount of space (in bytes) pointed to by addr. On return it contains the actual size of the socket address.

An mtcp_getsockname() call takes an additional argument named mctx that represents the per-core mTCP context in an application (see mtcp_create_context() for details).

RETURN VALUE

Returns zero on success; -1 on failure. In case of failure, errno is set appropriately.

ERRORS

EBADF

The argument sockfd is not a valid socket descriptor.

EINVAL

addrlen argument is invalid (e.g., is negative).

ENOTSOCK

The argument sockfd is pointing to an invalid mTCP socket.

NOTES

The third argument of mtcp_getsockname() is in reality an int * (and this is what 4.x BSD and libc4 and libc5 have). Some POSIX confusion resulted in the present socklen_t , also used by glibc.
