NAME

shutdown - shut down part of a full-duplex connection

SYNOPSIS

#include <sys/socket.h>

int shutdown(int s, int how);

DESCRIPTION

The shutdown() call causes all or part of a full-duplex connection on the socket associated with s 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

TagDescription
EBADF s is not a valid descriptor.
ENOTCONN
  The specified socket is not connected.
ENOTSOCK
  s is a file, not a socket.

NOTES

The constants SHUT_RD, SHUT_WR, SHUT_RDWR have the value 0, 1, 2, respectively, and are defined in <sys/socket.h> since glibc-2.1.91.

CONFORMING TO
