NAME         top

       sctp_optinfo - Get options on a SCTP socket.

SYNOPSIS         top

       #include <sys/types.h>
       #include <sys/socket.h>
       #include <netinet/sctp.h>

       int sctp_opt_info(int sd, sctp_assoc_t id, int opt,
                         void * arg, socklen_t * size);

DESCRIPTION         top

       sctp_opt_info is a wrapper library function that can be used to
       get SCTP level options on a socket.  sd is the socket descriptor
       for which the option is requested. For one-to-many style sockets,
       id specifies the association to query. For one-to-one style
       sockets, id is ignored.  opt specifes the SCTP socket option to
       get.  arg is an option-specific structure buffer provided by the
       caller.  size is a value-result parameter, initially containing
       the size of the buffer pointed to by arg and modifed on return to
       indicate the actual size of the value returned.

RETURN VALUE         top

       On success, sctp_opt_info returns 0 and on failure -1 is returned
       with errno set to the appropriate error code.
