socket_getifname - Man Page

get interface name


#include <socket.h>

const char* socket_getifname(uint32 interface);


socket_getifname returns the symbolic interface name for a network interface number.  The returned char* is a static buffer in the libc. If you query the named for more than one interface, you have to save the name before calling socket_getifidx again.

If something goes wrong, socket_getifname returns "[unknown]".
