SYNOPSIS
SYNOPSIS
#include <sys/types.h>
#include <sys/socket.h>
#include <sys/types.h>
#include <sys/socket.h>
int accept(int s, struct sockaddr *addr, int *addrlen);
int bind(int s, const struct sockaddr *name, int namelen);
DESCRIPTION
DESCRIPTION
The argument s is a socket that has been created with socket(3N) and bound to an address with bind(3N),
and that is listening for connections after a call to listen(3N). The accept( ) function extracts the first connection on the queue of pending connections, creates a new socket with the properties of s, and allocates a
new file descriptor, ns, for the socket. If no pending connections are present on the queue and the socket is
not marked as non-blocking, accept( ) blocks the caller until a connection is present. If the socket is
marked as non-blocking and no pending connections are present on the queue, accept( ) returns an error as
described below. The accept( ) function uses the netconfig(4) file to determine the STREAMS device file
name associated with s. This is the device on which the connect indication will be accepted. The accepted
socket, ns, is used to read and write data to and from the socket that connected to ns; it is not used to accept
more connections. The original socket (s) remains open for accepting further connections.
bind( ) assigns a name to an unnamed socket. When a socket is created with socket(3N), it exists in a name
space (address family) but has no name assigned. bind( ) requests that the name pointed to by name be
assigned to the socket.
RETURN VALUES
If the bind is successful, 0 is returned. A return value of −1 indicates an error, which is further specified in
the global errno.
ERRORS
The bind( ) call will fail if:
EACCES
The argument addr is a result parameter that is filled in with the address of the connecting entity as it is
known to the communications layer. The exact format of the addr parameter is determined by the domain
in which the communication occurs.
The argument addrlen is a value-result parameter. Initially, it contains the amount of space pointed to by
addr; on return it contains the length in bytes of the address returned.
The accept( ) function is used with connection-based socket types, currently with SOCK_STREAM.
It is possible to select(3C) or poll(2) a socket for the purpose of an accept( ) by selecting or polling it for a
read. However, this will only indicate when a connect indication is pending; it is still necessary to call
accept( ).
RETURN VALUES
The requested address is protected and the current user has inadequate permission
to access it.
EADDRINUSE
The specified address is already in use.
EADDRNOTAVAIL
The specified address is not available on the local machine.
EBADF
s is not a valid descriptor.
EINVAL
namelen is not the size of a valid address for the specified address family.
EINVAL
The socket is already bound to an address.
ENOSR
There were insufficient STREAMS resources for the operation to complete.
ENOTSOCK
s is a descriptor for a file, not a socket.
The following errors are specific to binding names in the UNIX domain:
The accept( ) function returns −1 on error. If it succeeds, it returns a non-negative integer that is a descriptor for the accepted socket.
EACCES
ERRORS
Search permission is denied for a component of the path prefix of the pathname in
name.
accept( ) will fail if:
EIO
An I/O error occurred while making the directory entry or allocating the inode.
EBADF
The descriptor is invalid.
EISDIR
A null pathname was specified.
EINTR
The accept attempt was interrupted by the delivery of a signal.
ELOOP
Too many symbolic links were encountered in translating the pathname in name.
The per-process descriptor table is full.
ENOENT
A component of the path prefix of the pathname in name does not exist.
ENODEV
The protocol family and type corresponding to s could not be found in the netconfig file.
ENOTDIR
A component of the path prefix of the pathname in name is not a directory.
EROFS
The inode would reside on a read-only file system.
ENOMEM
There was insufficient user memory available to complete the operation.
SEE ALSO
EPROTO
A protocol error has occurred; for example, the STREAMS protocol stack has not
been initialized or the connection has already been released.
NOTES
EMFILE
EWOULDBLOCK
The socket is marked as non-blocking and no connections are present to be
accepted.
unlink(2), socket(3N), attributes(5), socket(5)
Binding a name in the UNIX domain creates a socket in the file system that must be deleted by the caller
when it is no longer needed (using unlink(2)).
The rules used in name binding vary between communication domains.

ferror(3)
NAME
fopen/fdopen(3)
fopen/fdopen(3)
NAME
clearerr, feof, ferror, fileno − check and reset stream status
fopen, fdopen − stream open functions
SYNOPSIS
SYNOPSIS
#include <stdio.h>
#include <stdio.h>
void clearerr(FILE *stream);
int feof(FILE *stream);
int ferror(FILE *stream);
int fileno(FILE *stream);
FILE *fopen(const char * path, const char *mode);
FILE *fdopen(int fildes, const char *mode);
DESCRIPTION
The fopen function opens the file whose name is the string pointed to by path and associates a stream with
it.
DESCRIPTION
The function clearerr() clears the end-of-file and error indicators for the stream pointed to by stream.
The function feof() tests the end-of-file indicator for the stream pointed to by stream, returning non-zero if
it is set. The end-of-file indicator can only be cleared by the function clearerr().
The function ferror() tests the error indicator for the stream pointed to by stream, returning non-zero if it is
set. The error indicator can only be reset by the clearerr() function.
The function fileno() examines the argument stream and returns its integer descriptor.
For non-locking counterparts, see unlocked_stdio(3).
The argument mode points to a string beginning with one of the following sequences (Additional characters
may follow these sequences.):
r
Open text file for reading. The stream is positioned at the beginning of the file.
r+
Open for reading and writing. The stream is positioned at the beginning of the file.
w
Truncate file to zero length or create text file for writing. The stream is positioned at the beginning
of the file.
w+
Open for reading and writing. The file is created if it does not exist, otherwise it is truncated. The
stream is positioned at the beginning of the file.
a
Open for appending (writing at end of file). The file is created if it does not exist. The stream is
positioned at the end of the file.
a+
Open for reading and appending (writing at end of file). The file is created if it does not exist.
The stream is positioned at the end of the file.
ERRORS
These functions should not fail and do not set the external variable errno. (However, in case fileno()
detects that its argument is not a valid stream, it must return −1 and set errno to EBADF.)
CONFORMING TO
The functions clearerr(), feof(), and ferror() conform to C89 and C99.
SEE ALSO
The fdopen function associates a stream with the existing file descriptor, fildes. The mode of the stream
(one of the values "r", "r+", "w", "w+", "a", "a+") must be compatible with the mode of the file descriptor.
The file position indicator of the new stream is set to that belonging to fildes, and the error and end-of-file
indicators are cleared. Modes "w" or "w+" do not cause truncation of the file. The file descriptor is not
dup’ed, and will be closed when the stream created by fdopen is closed. The result of applying fdopen to a
shared memory object is undefined.
open(2), fdopen(3), stdio(3), unlocked_stdio(3)
RETURN VALUE
Upon successful completion fopen, fdopen and freopen return a FILE pointer. Otherwise, NULL is
returned and the global variable errno is set to indicate the error.
ERRORS
EINVAL
The mode provided to fopen, fdopen, or freopen was invalid.
The fopen, fdopen and freopen functions may also fail and set errno for any of the errors specified for the
routine malloc(3).
The fopen function may also fail and set errno for any of the errors specified for the routine open(2).
The fdopen function may also fail and set errno for any of the errors specified for the routine fcntl(2).

getc/fgets(3)
NAME
ip(7)
ip(7)
NAME
fgetc, fgets, getc, getchar, gets, ungetc − input of characters and strings
ip − Linux IPv4 protocol implementation
SYNOPSIS
SYNOPSIS
#include <stdio.h>
#include <sys/socket.h>
#include <netinet/in.h>
int fgetc(FILE *stream);
char *fgets(char *s, int size, FILE *stream);
int getc(FILE *stream);
int getchar(void);
char *gets(char *s);
int ungetc(int c, FILE *stream);
tcp_socket = socket(PF_INET, SOCK_STREAM, 0);
raw_socket = socket(PF_INET, SOCK_RAW, protocol);
udp_socket = socket(PF_INET, SOCK_DGRAM, protocol);
DESCRIPTION
The programmer’s interface is BSD sockets compatible. For more information on sockets, see socket(7).
DESCRIPTION
fgetc() reads the next character from stream and returns it as an unsigned char cast to an int, or EOF on
end of file or error.
getc() is equivalent to fgetc() except that it may be implemented as a macro which evaluates stream more
than once.
getchar() is equivalent to getc(stdin).
gets() reads a line from stdin into the buffer pointed to by s until either a terminating newline or EOF,
which it replaces with ’\0’. No check for buffer overrun is performed (see BUGS below).
fgets() reads in at most one less than size characters from stream and stores them into the buffer pointed to
by s. Reading stops after an EOF or a newline. If a newline is read, it is stored into the buffer. A ’\0’ is
stored after the last character in the buffer.
ungetc() pushes c back to stream, cast to unsigned char, where it is available for subsequent read operations. Pushed-back characters will be returned in reverse order; only one pushback is guaranteed.
An IP socket is created by calling the socket(2) function as socket(PF_INET, socket_type, protocol).
Valid socket types are SOCK_STREAM to open a tcp(7) socket, SOCK_DGRAM to open a udp(7)
socket, or SOCK_RAW to open a raw(7) socket to access the IP protocol directly. protocol is the IP protocol in the IP header to be received or sent. The only valid values for protocol are 0 and IPPROTO_TCP
for TCP sockets and 0 and IPPROTO_UDP for UDP sockets.
When a process wants to receive new incoming packets or connections, it should bind a socket to a local
interface address using bind(2). Only one IP socket may be bound to any given local (address, port) pair.
When INADDR_ANY is specified in the bind call the socket will be bound to all local interfaces. When
listen(2) or connect(2) are called on a unbound socket the socket is automatically bound to a random free
port with the local address set to INADDR_ANY.
ADDRESS FORMAT
An IP socket address is defined as a combination of an IP interface address and a port number. The basic IP
protocol does not supply port numbers, they are implemented by higher level protocols like tcp(7).
Calls to the functions described here can be mixed with each other and with calls to other input functions
from the stdio library for the same input stream.
struct sockaddr_in {
sa_family_t
sin_family;
u_int16_t
sin_port;
struct in_addr sin_addr;
};
/* Internet address. */
struct in_addr {
u_int32_t
s_addr;
};
For non-locking counterparts, see unlocked_stdio(3).
RETURN VALUE
fgetc(), getc() and getchar() return the character read as an unsigned char cast to an int or EOF on end of
file or error.
gets() and fgets() return s on success, and NULL on error or when end of file occurs while no characters
have been read.
ungetc() returns c on success, or EOF on error.
/* address family: AF_INET */
/* port in network byte order */
/* internet address */
/* address in network byte order */
sin_family is always set to AF_INET. This is required; in Linux 2.2 most networking functions return
EINVAL when this setting is missing. sin_port contains the port in network byte order. The port numbers
below 1024 are called reserved ports. Only processes with effective user id 0 or the
CAP_NET_BIND_SERVICE capability may bind(2) to these sockets.
CONFORMING TO
C89, C99. LSB deprecates gets().
BUGS
Never use gets(). Because it is impossible to tell without knowing the data in advance how many characters
gets() will read, and because gets() will continue to store characters past the end of the buffer, it is
extremely dangerous to use. It has been used to break computer security. Use fgets() instead.
sin_addr is the IP host address. The addr member of struct in_addr contains the host interface address in
network order. in_addr should be only accessed using the inet_aton(3), inet_addr(3), inet_makeaddr(3)
library functions or directly with the name resolver (see gethostbyname(3)).
It is not advisable to mix calls to input functions from the stdio library with low-level calls to read(2) for
the file descriptor associated with the input stream; the results will be undefined and very probably not what
you want.
Note that the address and the port are always stored in network order. In particular, this means that you
need to call htons(3) on the number that is assigned to a port. All address/port manipulation functions in
the standard library work in network order.

sigaction(2)
sigaction(2)
NAME
sigsuspend/sigprocmask(2)
sigsuspend/sigprocmask(2)
NAME
sigaction − POSIX signal handling functions.
sigprocmask − change and/or examine caller’s signal mask
sigsuspend − install a signal mask and suspend caller until signal
SYNOPSIS
#include <signal.h>
SYNOPSIS
#include <signal.h>
int sigaction(int signum, const struct sigaction *act, struct sigaction *oldact);
int sigprocmask(int how, const sigset_t *set, sigset_t *oset);
DESCRIPTION
int sigsuspend(const sigset_t *set);
The sigaction system call is used to change the action taken by a process on receipt of a specific signal.
DESCRIPTION sigprocmask
signum specifies the signal and can be any valid signal except SIGKILL and SIGSTOP.
The sigprocmask( ) function is used to examine and/or change the caller’s signal mask. If the value is
If act is non−null, the new action for signal signum is installed from act. If oldact is non−null, the previous
action is saved in oldact.
The sigaction structure is defined as something like
struct sigaction {
void (*sa_handler)(int);
void (*sa_sigaction)(int, siginfo_t *, void *);
sigset_t sa_mask;
int sa_flags;
void (*sa_restorer)(void);
}
SIG_BLOCK, the set pointed to by the argument set is added to the current signal mask. If the value is
SIG_UNBLOCK, the set pointed by the argument set is removed from the current signal mask. If the value
is SIG_SETMASK, the current signal mask is replaced by the set pointed to by the argument set. If the
argument oset is not NULL, the previous mask is stored in the space pointed to by oset. If the value of the
argument set is NULL, the value how is not significant and the caller’s signal mask is unchanged; thus, the
call can be used to inquire about currently blocked signals.
If there are any pending unblocked signals after the call to sigprocmask( ), at least one of those signals will
be delivered before the call to sigprocmask( ) returns.
It is not possible to block those signals that cannot be ignored this restriction is silently imposed by the system. See sigaction(2).
If sigprocmask( ) fails, the caller’s signal mask is not changed.
On some architectures a union is involved - do not assign to both sa_handler and sa_sigaction.
The sa_restorer element is obsolete and should not be used. POSIX does not specify a sa_restorer element.
sa_handler specifies the action to be associated with signum and may be SIG_DFL for the default action,
SIG_IGN to ignore this signal, or a pointer to a signal handling function.
sa_mask gives a mask of signals which should be blocked during execution of the signal handler. In addition, the signal which triggered the handler will be blocked, unless the SA_NODEFER or SA_NOMASK
flags are used.
sa_flags specifies a set of flags which modify the behaviour of the signal handling process. It is formed by
the bitwise OR of zero or more of the following:
SA_NOCLDSTOP
If signum is SIGCHLD, do not receive notification when child processes stop (i.e., when
child processes receive one of SIGSTOP, SIGTSTP, SIGTTIN or SIGTTOU).
SA_RESTART
Provide behaviour compatible with BSD signal semantics by making certain system calls
restartable across signals.
RETURN VALUES
RETURN VALUES
On success, sigprocmask( ) returns 0. On failure, it returns −1 and sets errno to indicate the error.
ERRORS
sigprocmask( ) fails if any of the following is true:
EFAULT
set or oset points to an illegal address.
EINVAL
The value of the how argument is not equal to one of the defined values.
DESCRIPTION sigsuspend
sigsuspend( ) replaces the caller’s signal mask with the set of signals pointed to by the argument set and
then suspends the caller until delivery of a signal whose action is either to execute a signal catching function or to terminate the process.
If the action is to terminate the process, sigsuspend( ) does not return. If the action is to execute a signal
catching function, sigsuspend( ) returns after the signal catching function returns. On return, the signal
mask is restored to the set that existed before the call to sigsuspend( ).
It is not possible to block those signals that cannot be ignored (see signal(5)); this restriction is silently
imposed by the system.
RETURN VALUES
sigaction returns 0 on success and -1 on error.
Since sigsuspend( ) suspends process execution indefinitely, there is no successful completion return value.
On failure, it returns −1 and sets errno to indicate the error.
ERRORS
EINVAL
An invalid signal was specified. This will also be generated if an attempt is made to change the
action for SIGKILL or SIGSTOP, which cannot be caught.
SEE ALSO
kill(1), kill(2), killpg(2), pause(2), sigsetops(3),
ERRORS
sigsuspend( ) fails if either of the following is true:
EFAULT
set points to an illegal address.
EINTR
A signal is caught by the calling process and control is returned from the signal catching
function.

NAME
sigsetops, sigemptyset, sigfillset, sigaddset, sigdelset, sigismember − manipulate sets of signals
socket − create an endpoint for communication
SYNOPSIS
SYNOPSIS
#include <signal.h>
#include <sys/types.h>
#include <sys/socket.h>
int sigemptyset(sigset_t *set);
int socket(int domain, int type, int protocol);
int sigfillset(sigset_t *set);
DESCRIPTION
int sigaddset(sigset_t *set, int signo);
socket( ) creates an endpoint for communication and returns a descriptor.
int sigdelset(sigset_t *set, int signo);
int sigismember(sigset_t *set, int signo);
DESCRIPTION
These functions manipulate sigset_t data types, representing the set of signals supported by the implementation.
sigemptyset( ) initializes the set pointed to by set to exclude all signals defined by the system.
The domain parameter specifies a communications domain within which communication will take place;
this selects the protocol family which should be used. The protocol family generally is the same as the
address family for the addresses supplied in later operations on the socket. The currently understood formats are:
PF_INET
sigfillset( ) initializes the set pointed to by set to include all signals defined by the system.
SOCK_STREAM
SOCK_DGRAM
sigaddset( ) adds the individual signal specified by the value of signo to the set pointed to by set.
sigdelset( ) deletes the individual signal specified by the value of signo from the set pointed to by set.
sigismember( ) checks whether the signal specified by the value of signo is a member of the set pointed to
by set.
Any object of type sigset_t must be initialized by applying either sigemptyset( ) or sigfillset( ) before
applying any other operation.
RETURN VALUES
Upon successful completion, the sigismember( ) function returns a value of one if the specified signal is a
member of the specified set, or a value of 0 if it is not. Upon successful completion, the other functions
return a value of 0. Otherwise a value of −1 is returned and errno is set to indicate the error.
ERRORS
sigaddset( ), sigdelset( ), and sigismember( ) will fail if the following is true:
EINVAL
The value of the signo argument is not a valid signal number.
sigfillset( ) will fail if the following is true:
EFAULT
ARPA Internet protocols
The socket has the indicated type, which specifies the communication semantics. Currently defined types
are:
The set argument specifies an invalid address.
A SOCK_STREAM type provides sequenced, reliable, two-way connection-based byte streams. An out-ofband data transmission mechanism may be supported. A SOCK_DGRAM socket supports datagrams (connectionless, unreliable messages of a fixed (typically small) maximum length).
protocol specifies a particular protocol to be used with the socket. Normally only a single protocol exists to
support a particular socket type within a given protocol family. However, multiple protocols may exist, in
which case a particular protocol must be specified in this manner. The protocol number to use is particular
to the “communication domain” in which communication is to take place. If a protocol is specified by the
caller, then it will be packaged into a socket level option request and sent to the underlying protocol layers.
Sockets of type SOCK_STREAM are full-duplex byte streams, similar to pipes. A stream socket must be in
a connected state before any data may be sent or received on it. A connection to another socket is created
with a connect(3N) call. Once connected, data may be transferred using read(2) and write(2) calls or
some variant of the send(3N) and recv(3N) calls. When a session has been completed, a close(2) may be
performed. Out-of-band data may also be transmitted as described on the send(3N) manual page and
received as described on the recv(3N) manual page.
The communications protocols used to implement a SOCK_STREAM insure that data is not lost or duplicated. If a piece of data for which the peer protocol has buffer space cannot be successfully transmitted
within a reasonable length of time, then the connection is considered broken and calls will indicate an error
with −1 returns and with ETIMEDOUT as the specific code in the global variable errno. A SIGPIPE signal
is raised if a process sends on a broken stream; this causes naive processes, which do not handle the signal,
to exit.

RETURN VALUES
A −1 is returned if an error occurs. Otherwise the return value is a descriptor referencing the socket.

Permission to create a socket of the specified type and/or protocol is denied.

The per-process descriptor table is full.

stat(2)
stat(2)
NAME
waitpid(2)
waitpid(2)
NAME
stat, lstat − get file status
waitpid − wait for child process to change state
SYNOPSIS
SYNOPSIS
#include <sys/types.h>
#include <sys/stat.h>
#include <unistd.h>
#include <sys/types.h>
#include <sys/wait.h>
pid_t waitpid(pid_t pid, int *stat_loc, int options);
DESCRIPTION
int stat(const char * file_name, struct stat *buf );
int lstat(const char * file_name, struct stat *buf );
DESCRIPTION
These functions return information about the specified file. You do not need any access rights to the file to
get this information but you need search rights to all directories named in the path leading to the file.
waitpid( ) suspends the calling process until one of its children changes state; if a child process changed
state prior to the call to waitpid( ), return is immediate. pid specifies a set of child processes for which status is requested.
If pid is equal to (pid_t)−1, status is requested for any child process.
stat stats the file pointed to by file_name and fills in buf .
If pid is greater than (pid_t)0, it specifies the process ID of the child process for which status is
requested.
lstat is identical to stat, except in the case of a symbolic link, where the link itself is stat-ed, not the file that
it refers to.
If pid is equal to (pid_t)0 status is requested for any child process whose process group ID is equal
to that of the calling process.
They all return a stat structure, which contains the following fields:
If pid is less than (pid_t)−1, status is requested for any child process whose process group ID is
equal to the absolute value of pid.
struct stat {
dev_t
ino_t
mode_t
nlink_t
uid_t
gid_t
dev_t
off_t
blksize_t
blkcnt_t
time_t
time_t
time_t
};
If waitpid( ) returns because the status of a child process is available, then that status may be evaluated with
the macros defined by wstat(5). If the calling process had specified a non-zero value of stat_loc, the status
of the child process will be stored in the location pointed to by stat_loc.
st_dev;
/* device */
st_ino; /* inode */
st_mode; /* protection */
st_nlink; /* number of hard links */
st_uid; /* user ID of owner */
st_gid; /* group ID of owner */
st_rdev; /* device type (if inode device) */
st_size; /* total size, in bytes */
st_blksize; /* blocksize for filesystem I/O */
st_blocks; /* number of blocks allocated */
st_atime; /* time of last access */
st_mtime; /* time of last modification */
st_ctime; /* time of last status change */
The options argument is constructed from the bitwise inclusive OR of zero or more of the following flags,
defined in the header <sys/wait.h>:
WCONTINUED
The status of any continued child process specified by pid, whose status has not
been reported since it continued, is also reported to the calling process.
WNOHANG
waitpid( ) will not suspend execution of the calling process if status is not immediately available for one of the child processes specified by pid.
WNOWAIT
Keep the process whose status is returned in stat_loc in a waitable state. The process may be waited for again with identical results.
RETURN VALUES
The value st_size gives the size of the file (if it is a regular file or a symlink) in bytes. The size of a symlink
is the length of the pathname it contains, without trailing NUL.
The field st_atime is changed by file accesses, e.g. by execve(2), mknod(2), pipe(2), utime(2) and read(2)
(of more than zero bytes). Other routines, like mmap(2), may or may not update st_atime.
If waitpid( ) returns because the status of a child process is available, this function returns a value equal to
the process ID of the child process for which status is reported. If waitpid( ) returns due to the delivery of a
signal to the calling process, −1 is returned and errno is set to EINTR. If this function was invoked with
WNOHANG set in options, it has at least one child process specified by pid for which status is not available,
and status is not available for any process specified by pid, 0 is returned. Otherwise, −1 is returned, and
errno is set to indicate the error.
ERRORS
The field st_mtime is changed by file modifications, e.g. by mknod(2), truncate(2), utime(2) and write(2)
(of more than zero bytes). Moreover, st_mtime of a directory is changed by the creation or deletion of files
in that directory. The st_mtime field is not changed for changes in owner, group, hard link count, or mode.
The field st_ctime is changed by writing or by setting inode information (i.e., owner, group, link count,
mode, etc.).
RETURN VALUE
waitpid( ) will fail if one or more of the following is true:
ECHILD
The process or process group specified by pid does not exist or is not a child of the calling process or can never be in the states specified by options.
EINTR
waitpid( ) was interrupted due to the receipt of a signal sent by the calling process.
EINVAL
