AU_BSM_TO_SOCKET_TYPE(3) BSD Library Functions Manual AU_BSM_TO_SOCKET_TYPE(3)NAME
au_bsm_to_socket_type, au_socket_type_to_bsm — convert between BSM and
local socket types
au_bsm_to_socket_type(u_short bsm_socket_type, int *local_socket_typep);
These interfaces may be used to convert between the local and BSM socket
types. The au_bsm_to_socket_type() function accepts a BSM socket type,
bsm_socket_type, and converts it to a local socket type, such as those
passed to socket(2), that will be stored in the integer pointed to by
local_socket_typep if successful. This call will fail if the BSM socket
type cannot be mapped into a local socket type, which may occur if the
socket token was generated on another operating system.
au_socket_type_to_bsm() function accepts a local socket type, and returns
the BSM socket type for it. This call cannot fail, and instead returns a
BSM socket type indicating to a later decoder that the socket type could
not be encoded.
On success, au_bsm_to_socket_type() returns 0 and a converted socket
type; on failure, it returns -1 but does not set errno(2).
On success, au_strerror() returns a pointer to an error string; on fail‐
ure it will return NULL.
