SHUTDOWN(2) NetBSD System Calls Manual SHUTDOWN(2)
shutdown -- shut down part of a full-duplex connection
Standard C Library (libc, -lc)
#include <sys/socket.h> int shutdown(int s, int how);
The shutdown() call causes all or part of a full-duplex connection on the socket associated with s to be shut down. The how argument specifies which part of the connection will be shut down. Permissible values are: SHUT_RD further receives will be disallowed. SHUT_WR further sends will be disallowed. SHUT_RDWR further sends and receives will be disallowed.
A 0 is returned if the call succeeds, -1 if it fails.
The call succeeds unless: [EBADF] s is not a valid descriptor. [EINVAL] The how argument is invalid. [ENOTCONN] The specified socket is not connected. [ENOTSOCK] s is a file, not a socket.
The shutdown() function call appeared in 4.2BSD. The how arguments used to be simply 0, 1, and 2, but now have named values as specified by X/Open Portability Guide Issue 4 (``XPG4''). NetBSD 8.1 August 18, 2002 NetBSD 8.1
