SHUTDOWN(2) Linux Programmer's Manual SHUTDOWN(2)

NAME

     shutdown - shut down part of a full-duplex connection

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  recep-
     tions 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 file descriptor.
     EINVAL An invalid value was specified in how (but see BUGS).
     ENOTCONN
            The specified socket is not connected.
     ENOTSOCK
            The file descriptor sockfd does not refer to a socket.

CONFORMING TO

     POSIX.1-2001,  POSIX.1-2008,  4.4BSD  (shutdown()  first  appeared   in
     4.2BSD).

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.

BUGS

     Checks for the validity of how are done in  domain-specific  code,  and
     before Linux 3.7 not all domains performed these checks.  Most notably,
     UNIX domain sockets simply ignored invalid values.   This  problem  was
     fixed for UNIX domain sockets in Linux 3.7.
