int make_named_socket ( const char *  filename)

Definition at line 10 of file mkfsock.c.

  struct sockaddr_un name;
  int sock;
  size_t size;

  /* Create the socket.  */
  sock = socket (PF_LOCAL, SOCK_DGRAM, 0);
  if (sock < 0)
      perror ("socket");
      exit (EXIT_FAILURE);

  /* Bind a name to the socket.  */
  name.sun_family = AF_LOCAL;
  strncpy (name.sun_path, filename, sizeof (name.sun_path));
  name.sun_path[sizeof (name.sun_path) - 1] = '\0';

  /* The size of the address is
     the offset of the start of the filename,
     plus its length,
     plus one for the terminating null byte.
     Alternatively you can just do:
     size = SUN_LEN (&name);
  size = (offsetof (struct sockaddr_un, sun_path)
         + strlen (name.sun_path) + 1);

  if (bind (sock, (struct sockaddr *) &name, size) < 0)
      perror ("bind");
      exit (EXIT_FAILURE);

  return sock;
