SYNOPSIS


#include <sys/socket.h>

int shutdown(int sockfd, int how);

DESCRIPTION


The shutdown() call causes all or part of a full-duplex connection on the socket associated with sockfd to be shut down. If how is SHUT_RD, further receptions will be disallowed. If how is SHUT_WR, further transmissions will be disallowed. If how is SHUT_RDWR, further receptions and transmissions will be disallowed.

RETURN VALUE


On success, zero is returned. On error, -1 is returned, and errno is set appropriately.

ERRORS


EBADF sockfd is not a valid descriptor.

ENOTCONN
The specified socket is not connected.

ENOTSOCK
sockfd is a file, not a socket.
