#include <sys/types.h> #include <sys/socket.h> #include <netdb.h> const char * gai_strerror(int ecode); DESCRIPTION
The gai_strerror() function returns an error message string corresponding to the error code returned by getaddrinfo(3) or getnameinfo(3). The following error codes and their meaning are defined in <netdb.h>: EAI_AGAIN temporary failure in name resolution EAI_BADFLAGS invalid value for ai_flags EAI_BADHINTS invalid value for hints EAI_FAIL non-recoverable failure in name resolution EAI_FAMILY ai_family not supported EAI_MEMORY memory allocation failure EAI_NONAME hostname or servname not provided, or not known EAI_OVERFLOW argument buffer overflow EAI_PROTOCOL resolved protocol is unknown EAI_SERVICE servname not supported for ai_socktype EAI_SOCKTYPE ai_socktype not supported EAI_SYSTEM system error returned in errno RETURN VALUES
The gai_strerror() function returns a pointer to the error message string corresponding to ecode. If ecode is out of range, an implementa- tion-specific error message string is returned. SEE ALSO
