SYNOPSISIn sys/types.h In sys/socket.h
In fcntl.h Ft int Fn connectat int fd int s const struct sockaddr *name socklen_t namelen
DESCRIPTIONThe Fn connectat system call initiates a connection on a socket. It works just like the connect(2) system call with two exceptions:
It is limited to sockets in the PF_LOCAL domain.
- If the file path stored in the Fa sun_path field of the sockaddr_un structure is a relative path, it is located relative to the directory associated with the file descriptor Fa fd . If Fn connectat is passed the special value AT_FDCWD in the Fa fd parameter, the current working directory is used and the behavior is identical to a call to connect(2).
RETURN VALUESRv -std connectat
ERRORSThe Fn connectat system call may fail with the same errors as the connect(2) system call for a UNIX domain socket or with the following errors:
- Bq Er EBADF
- The Fa sun_path field does not specify an absolute path and the Fa fd argument is neither AT_FDCWD nor a valid file descriptor.
- Bq Er ENOTDIR
- The Fa sun_path field is not an absolute path and Fa fd is neither AT_FDCWD nor a file descriptor associated with a directory.
