socket_bind6_reuse(3)	   Library Functions Manual	 socket_bind6_reuse(3)

NAME
       socket_bind6_reuse - set	the local IP address and port of a socket

SYNTAX
       #include	<socket.h>

       int socket_bind6_reuse(int s,char ip[16],uint16 port,
			      uint32 scope_id);

DESCRIPTION
       socket_bind6_reuse  sets	 the  local  IP	 address and TCP/UDP port of a
       TCP/UDP socket s	to ip and port respectively.

       If the IP address is ::,	the operating system chooses a	local  IP  ad-
       dress.  If port is 0, the operating system chooses a port.

       Normally	  socket_bind6_reuse   returns	0.  If	anything  goes	wrong,
       socket_bind6_reuse returns -1, setting errno appropriately.

       The scope_id should normally be zero, but for link-local	 addresses  it
       specifies  the interface	number on which	to bind.  The interface	number
       for a given network interface name can be found with socket_getifidx.

       Unlike socket_bind6 this	function will also tell	the  operating	system
       that the	address	is to be reused	soon, which turns off the normal pause
       before this IP and port can be bound again.

EXAMPLE
	 #include <socket.h>

	 int s;
	 char ip[16];
	 uint16	p;

	 s = socket_tcp4();
	 socket_bind6_reuse(s,ip,p);
	 socket_connect4(s,ip,p);
