Specifies the communications domain in which the sockets are created. This function does not create sockets in the Internet domain. Specifies the communications method that sockets use, for example SOCK_DGRAM or SOCK_STREAM. Specifies an optional identifier used to define the communications protocols used in the transport layer interface. Specifies a two-integer array used to hold the file descriptors of the socket pair created with the call to this function.
Not all protocol families support the socketpair() function.
Upon successful completion, this function returns a value of 0 (zero). Otherwise, -1 is returned and errno is specified to indicate the error.
If the socketpair() function fails, errno may be set to one of the following values: The addresses in the specified address family cannot be used to create this socket pair. The socket_vector array is not located in a writable part of user address space. The current process has too many open file descriptors. No more file descriptors are available for the system. The system was unable to allocate kernel memory to increase the process descriptor table. The specified protocol does not permit creation of socket pairs. The specified protocol cannot be used in this system. The socket type is not supported by the protocol.
