NAME         top

       sctp_send - Send a message from a SCTP socket.

SYNOPSIS         top

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

       int sctp_send(int sd, const void * msg, size_t len,
                        const struct sctp_sndrcvinfo *sinfo,
                        uint32_t flags);

DESCRIPTION         top

       sctp_send is a wrapper library function that can be used to send
       a message from a socket without the use of the CMSG header
       structures.  sd is the socket descriptor from which the message
       pointed to by msg of length len is sent.  sinfo is a pointer to a
       sctp_sndrcvinfo structure.  flags parameter is composed of a
       bitwise OR of the flags that can be be passed as the 3rd argument
       of a standard sendmsg() call.

RETURN VALUE         top

       On success, sctp_sendmsg returns the number of bytes sent or -1
       if an error occurred.
