SCTP_GETADDRLEN(3)         Library Functions Manual         SCTP_GETADDRLEN(3)

NAME
     sctp_getaddrlen - return the address length of an address family

LIBRARY
     Standard C Library (libc, -lc)

SYNOPSIS
     #include <sys/types.h>
     #include <sys/socket.h>
     #include <netinet/sctp.h>

     int
     sctp_getaddrlen(sa_family_t family);

DESCRIPTION
     The sctp_getaddrlen() function returns the size of a specific address
     family.  This function is provided for application binary compatibility
     since it provides the application with the size the operating system
     thinks the specific address family is.  Note that the function will
     actually create an SCTP socket and then gather the information via a
     getsockopt() system calls.  If for some reason a SCTP socket cannot be
     created or the getsockopt() call fails, an error will be returned with
     errno set as specified in the socket() or getsockopt() system call.

RETURN VALUES
     The call returns the number of bytes that the operating system expects
     for the specific address family or -1.

ERRORS
     The sctp_getaddrlen() function can return the following errors:

     [EINVAL]           The address family specified does NOT exist.
