SCTP_GETADDRLEN(3) BSD Library Functions Manual SCTP_GETADDRLEN(3)NAMEsctp_getaddrlen — return the address length of an address family
Standard C Library (libc, -lc)
The sctp_getaddrlen() function returns the size of a specific address
family. This function is provided for application binary compatability
since it provides the application with the size the operating system
thinks the specific address family is. Note that the function will actu‐
ally 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.
The call returns the number of bytes that the operating system expects
for the specific address family or -1.
The sctp_getaddrlen() function can return the following errors:
[EINVAL] The address family specified does NOT exist.
