SCTP_GENERIC_SENDMSG(2) 				      BSD System Calls Manual					   SCTP_GENERIC_SENDMSG(2)

sctp_generic_sendmsg sctp_generic_sendmsg_iov -- send data to a peer LIBRARY
Standard C Library (libc, -lc) SYNOPSIS
#include <sys/types.h> #include <sys/socket.h> #include <netinet/sctp.h> int sctp_generic_sendmsg(int s, void *msg, int msglen, struct sockaddr *to, socklen_t len, struct sctp_sndrcvinfo *sinfo, int flags); int sctp_generic_sendmsg_iov(int s, struct iovec *iov, int iovlen, struct sockaddr *to, struct sctp_sndrcvinfo *sinfo, int flags); DESCRIPTION
sctp_generic_sendmsg() and sctp_generic_sendmsg_iov() are the true system calls used by the sctp_sendmsg(3) and sctp_send(3) function calls. These are more efficient since they are true system calls but they are specific to FreeBSD and can be expected not to be present on any other operating system. For detailed usage please see either the sctp_send(3) or sctp_sendmsg(3) function calls. RETURN VALUES
The call returns the number of bytes written on success and -1 upon failure. ERRORS
[EBADF] The argument s is not a valid descriptor. [ENOTSOCK] The argument s is not a socket. SEE ALSO

sctp_send - Send a message from a SCTP socket. SYNOPSIS
#include <sys/types.h> #include <sys/socket.h> #include <netinet/sctp.h> int sctp_send(int sd, const void * msg, size_t len, const struct sctp_sndrcvinfo *sinfo, uint32_t flags); DESCRIPTION
sctp_send is a wrapper library function that can be used to send a message from a socket without the use of the CMSG header structures. sd is the socket descriptor from which the message pointed to by msg of length len is sent. sinfo is a pointer to a sctp_sndrcvinfo struc- ture. flags parameter is composed of a bitwise OR of the flags that can be be passed as the 3rd argument of a standard sendmsg() call. RETURN VALUE
On success, sctp_sendmsg returns the number of bytes sent or -1 if an error occurred. SEE ALSO
