getsockname(2)							getsockname(2)

       getsockname - get socket	name

       #include	<sys/types.h>
       #include	<sys/socket.h>

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

       The  system  call  returns  the	current	 name for the specified	socket
       descriptor s.  The namelen parameter should be initialized to  indicate
       the  amount  of	space  pointed	to by name.  On	return it contains the
       actual size, in bytes, of the name returned.

Return Values
       A zero is returned if the call succeeds,	-1 if it fails.

       Names bound to sockets in the UNIX domain are inaccessible;  returns  a
       zero-length name.

       The call	succeeds unless:

       [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.
