socket_to_name(3ncs) [ultrix man page]

socket_to_name(3ncs)													      socket_to_name(3ncs)

Name
       socket_to_name - convert a socket address to a name and port number

Syntax
       #include <idl/c/socket.h>

       void socket_$to_name(sockaddr, slength, name, nlength, port, status)
       socket_$addr_t *sockaddr;
       unsigned long slength;
       socket_$string_t name;
       unsigned long *nlength;
       unsigned long *port;
       status_$t *status;

Arguments
       sockaddr 	   A socket address.  The socket address is the structure returned by either or

       slength		   The length, in bytes, of sockaddr.

       name		   A  string in the format family:host[port], where family is the address family and host is the host name; host may be in
			   the standard numeric form (for example, #192.1.2.3) if a textual host name cannot be obtained.  Currently, only  ip	is
			   supported for family.

       nlength		   On input, the maximum length, in bytes, of the name to be returned.	On output, the actual length of the name returned.

       port		   The port number.

       status		   The	completion status. If the completion status returned in is equal to status_$ok , then the routine that supplied it
			   was successful.

Description
       The routine converts a socket address to a textual address family, host name, and port number.

rpc_name_to_sockaddr(3ncs)												rpc_name_to_sockaddr(3ncs)

Name
       rpc_name_to_sockaddr - convert a host name and port number to a socket address (client or server)

Syntax
       #include <idl/c/rpc.h>

       void rpc_$name_to_sockaddr(name, nlength, port, family, sockaddr,				slength, status)
       unsigned char name;
       unsigned long nlength;
       unsigned long port;
       unsigned long family;
       socket_$addr_t *sockaddr;
       unsigned long *slength;
       status_$t *status;

Arguments
       name		   A  string  that  contains  a host name and, optionally, a port and an address family.  The format is family:host[port],
			   where family: and [port] are optional.  If you specify a family as  part  of  the  name  parameter,	you  must  specify
			   socket_$unspec in the family parameter.  The family part of the name parameter is ip; host is the host name; port is an
			   integer port number.

       nlength		   The number of characters in name.

       port		   The socket port number.  This parameter should have the value rpc_$unbound_port if you are not specifying a	well-known
			   port;  in  this case, the returned socket address will specify the Local Location Broker (LLB) forwarding port at host.
			   If you specify the port number in the name parameter, this parameter is ignored.

       family		   The address family to use for the socket address.  This value corresponds to the communications protocol used to access
			   the socket and determines how the sockaddr is expressed.  If you specify the address family in the name parameter, this
			   parameter must have the value socket_$unspec.

       sockaddr 	   The socket address corresponding to name, port, and family.

       slength		   The length, in bytes, of sockaddr.

       status		   The completion status.  If the completion status returned in is equal to status_$ok , then the routine that supplied it
			   was successful.

Description
       The routine provides the socket address for a socket, given the host name, the port number, and the address family.

       You  can specify the socket address information either as one text string in the name parameter or by passing each of the three elements as
       separate parameters( name, port, and family ); in the latter case, the name parameter should contain only the hostname.

Diagnostics
       This section lists status codes for errors returned by this routine in

       rpc_$not_in_call    An internal error.

       rpc_$proto_error    An internal protocol error.	This routine has been superseded by the routine.
