NAME
gai_strerror -- get error message string from EAI_xxx error code SYNOPSIS
#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_ADDRFAMILY address family for hostname not supported 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_NODATA no address associated with hostname 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
gai_strerror() returns a pointer to the error message string corresponding to ecode. If ecode is out of range, an implementation-specific error message string is returned. SEE ALSO
