SYNOPSIS


.In sys/types.h
.In sys/socket.h int getsockname int s struct sockaddr * restrict name socklen_t * restrict namelen

[ECONNRESET]
  The connection has been reset by the peer.
[ENOTSOCK]
  The argument s is a file, not a socket.
[ENOBUFS]
  Insufficient resources were available in the system to perform the operation.
