GETSOCKNAME(2)		   Linux Programmer's Manual		GETSOCKNAME(2)

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).

SEE ALSO
       bind(2),	socket(2)
