NAME
       shutdown - shut down part of a full-duplex connection

SYNOPSIS
       shutdown(s, how)
       int s, how;

DESCRIPTION
       The  shutdown call causes all or part of a full-duplex connection on the socket associated
       with s to be shut down.	If how is 0, then further receives will be disallowed.	If how is
       1,  then  further  sends will be disallowed.  If how is 2, then further sends and receives
       will be disallowed.

DIAGNOSTICS
       A 0 is returned if the call succeeds, -1 if it fails.

ERRORS
       The call succeeds unless:

       [EBADF]	      S is not a valid descriptor.

       [ENOTSOCK]     S is a file, not a socket.

       [ENOTCONN]     The specified socket is not connected.
