SOCKETPAIR(2) System Calls Manual SOCKETPAIR(2) NAME socketpair - create a pair of connected sockets LIBRARY Standard C Library (libc, -lc) SYNOPSIS #include <sys/socket.h> int socketpair(int d, int type, int protocol, int *sv); DESCRIPTION The socketpair() call creates an unnamed pair of connected sockets in the specified domain d, of the specified type, and using the optionally specified protocol. The descriptors used in referencing the new sockets are returned in sv and sv. The two sockets are indistinguishable. The type and protocol argument values are described in socket(2). RETURN VALUES A 0 is returned if the call succeeds, -1 if it fails. ERRORS The call succeeds unless: [EAFNOSUPPORT] The specified address family is not supported on this machine. [EFAULT] The address sv does not specify a valid part of the process address space. [EMFILE] Too many descriptors are in use by this process. [ENFILE] The system file table is full. [EOPNOTSUPP] The specified protocol does not support creation of socket pairs. [EPROTONOSUPPORT] The specified protocol is not supported on this machine. SEE ALSO pipe(2), read(2), socket(2), write(2) HISTORY The socketpair() function call appeared in 4.2BSD. BUGS This call is currently implemented only for the PF_LOCAL domain.
