shutdown - shut down socket send and receive operations
int shutdown(int socket, int how);
The shutdown() function shall cause all or part of a full-duplex connection on the socket associated with the file descriptor socket to be shut down.
The shutdown() function takes the following arguments:
The shutdown() function disables subsequent send and/or receive operations on a socket, depending on the value of the how argument.
socket Specifies the file descriptor of the socket. how Specifies the type of shutdown. The values are as follows: SHUT_RD Disables further receive operations. SHUT_WR Disables further send operations. SHUT_RDWR Disables further send and receive operations.
Upon successful completion, shutdown() shall return 0; otherwise, -1 shall be returned and errno set to indicate the error.
The shutdown() function shall fail if:
The following sections are informative.
EBADF The socket argument is not a valid file descriptor. EINVAL The how argument is invalid. ENOTCONN The socket is not connected. ENOTSOCK The socket argument does not refer to a socket.
The shutdown() function may fail if: ENOBUFS Insufficient resources were available in the system to perform the operation.
