socketpair - create a pair of connected sockets
#include <sys/types.h> /* See NOTES */ #include <sys/socket.h> int socketpair(int domain, int type, int protocol, int sv);
The socketpair() call creates an unnamed pair of connected sockets in the specified domain, of the specified type, and using the optionally specified protocol. For further details of these arguments, see socket(2). The file descriptors used in referencing the new sockets are returned in sv and sv. The two sockets are indistinguishable.
On success, zero is returned. On error, -1 is returned, and errno is set appropriately. On Linux (and other systems), socketpair() does not modify sv on failure. A requirement standardizing this behavior was added in POSIX.1-2016.
EAFNOSUPPORT The specified address family is not supported on this machine. EFAULT The address sv does not specify a valid part of the process address space. EMFILE The per-process limit on the number of open file descriptors has been reached. ENFILE The system-wide limit on the total number of open files has been reached. EOPNOTSUPP The specified protocol does not support creation of socket pairs. EPROTONOSUPPORT The specified protocol is not supported on this machine.
POSIX.1-2001, POSIX.1-2008, 4.4BSD. socketpair() first appeared in 4.2BSD. It is generally portable to/from non-BSD systems supporting clones of the BSD socket layer (including System V variants).
On Linux, the only supported domain for this call is AF_UNIX (or synonymously, AF_LOCAL). (Most implementations have the same restriction.) Since Linux 2.6.27, socketpair() supports the SOCK_NONBLOCK and SOCK_CLOEXEC flags in the type argument, as described in socket(2). POSIX.1 does not require the inclusion of <sys/types.h>, and this header file is not required on Linux. However, some historical (BSD) implementations required this header file, and portable applications are probably wise to include it.
