socket_recv4 — receive a UDP datagram

Syntax

#include <socket.h>

ssize_t socket_recv4(int s, char* buf, size_t len,
                char ip[4],uint16* port);

Description

socket_recv4 receives up to len bytes starting at buf from a UDP datagram coming in on the socket s.  It writes the UDP port to port and the IP address to ip, and returns the number of bytes actually received (or -1 if anything went wrong).

Return Value

socket_recv4 returns the number of bytes in the datagram if one was received.  If not, it returns -1 and sets errno appropriately.

Example

 #include <socket.h>

 int s;
 char ip[4];
 uint16 p;
 char buf[1000];
 int len;

 s = socket_tcp4();
 socket_bind4(s,ip,p);
 len = socket_recv4(s,buf,sizeof(buf),ip,&p);
