GETDOMAINNAME(3)        NetBSD Library Functions Manual       GETDOMAINNAME(3)

NAME
     getdomainname, setdomainname -- get/set domain name of current host

LIBRARY
     Standard C Library (libc, -lc)

SYNOPSIS
     #include <unistd.h>

     int
     getdomainname(char *name, size_t namelen);

     int
     setdomainname(const char *name, size_t namelen);

DESCRIPTION
     getdomainname() returns the standard domain name for the current proces-
     sor, as previously set by setdomainname().  The parameter namelen speci-
     fies the size of the name array.  The returned name is null-terminated
     unless insufficient space is provided.

     setdomainname() sets the domain name of the host machine to be name,
     which has length namelen.  This call is restricted to the super-user and
     is normally used only when the system is bootstrapped.

RETURN VALUES
     If the call succeeds a value of 0 is returned.  If the call fails, a
     value of -1 is returned and an error code is placed in the global loca-
     tion errno.

ERRORS
     The following errors may be returned by these calls:

     [EFAULT]           The name or namelen parameter gave an invalid address.

     [EPERM]            The caller tried to set the domain name and was not
                        the super-user.

SEE ALSO
     gethostid(3), gethostname(3), sysctl(3)

HISTORY
     The getdomainname function call appeared in 4.2BSD.

BUGS
     Domain names are limited to MAXHOSTNAMELEN (from <sys/param.h>) charac-
     ters including null-termination, currently 256.
