sockatmark


SYNOPSIS
       #include <sys/socket.h>

       int sockatmark(int sockfd);

   Feature Test Macro Requirements for glibc (see feature_test_macros(7)):

       sockatmark(): _POSIX_C_SOURCE >= 200112L || _XOPEN_SOURCE >= 600

DESCRIPTION
       sockatmark()  returns  a  value  indicating  whether  or not the socket
       referred to by the file descriptor sockfd is at the  out-of-band  mark.
       If  the socket is at the mark, then 1 is returned; if the socket is not
       at the mark, 0 is returned.  This function does not remove the  out-of-
       band mark.

RETURN VALUE
       A  successful  call  to  sockatmark() returns 1 if the socket is at the
       out-of-band mark, or 0 if it is not.  On  error,  -1  is  returned  and
       errno is set to indicate the error.

ERRORS
       EBADF  sockfd is not a valid file descriptor.

       EINVAL sockfd  is  not  a  file descriptor to which sockatmark() can be
              applied.

VERSIONS
       sockatmark() was added to glibc in version 2.2.4.

CONFORMING TO
       POSIX.1-2001.

NOTES
       If sockatmark() returns 1, then the out-of-band data can be read  using
       the MSG_OOB flag of recv(2).

       Out-of-band data is only supported on some stream socket protocols.

       sockatmark() can safely be called from a handler for the SIGURG signal.

       sockatmark() is implemented using the SIOCATMARK ioctl(2) operation.

BUGS
       Prior to glibc 2.4, sockatmark() did not work.

EXAMPLE
       The following code can be used after receipt of a SIGURG signal to read
       (and discard) all data up to the mark, and then read the byte  of  data
       at the mark:

           char buf[BUF_LEN];
           char oobdata;
               s = read(sockfd, buf, BUF_LEN) <= 0);
               if (s == -1)
                   perror("read");
               if (s <= 0)
                   break;
           }

           if (atmark == 1) {
               if (recv(sockfd, &oobdata, 1, MSG_OOB) == -1) {
                   perror("recv");
                   ...
               }
           }
