NAME

shutdown — shut down socket send and receive operations

SYNOPSIS

#include <sys/socket.h>

int shutdown(int socket, int how);

DESCRIPTION

The shutdown() function shall cause all or part of a full-duplex connection on the socket associated with the file descriptor socket to be shut down.
The shutdown() function takes the following arguments:
socket Specifies the file descriptor of the socket.
how Specifies the type of shutdown. The values are as follows:
SHUT_RD Disables further receive operations.
SHUT_WR Disables further send operations.
SHUT_RDWR Disables further send and receive operations.
The shutdown() function disables subsequent send and/or receive operations on a socket, depending on the value of the how argument.

RETURN VALUE

Upon successful completion, shutdown() shall return 0; otherwise, -1 shall be returned and errno set to indicate the error.

ERRORS

The shutdown() function shall fail if:
EBADF The socket argument is not a valid file descriptor.
EINVAL The how argument is invalid.
ENOTCONN

ENOTSOCK
The socket argument does not refer to a socket.
