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 receptions 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 descriptor.

       ENOTCONN
              The specified socket is not connected.

       ENOTSOCK
              sockfd is a file, not a socket.

CONFORMING TO

       POSIX.1-2001, 4.4BSD (the shutdown() function call 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.
