.TH io_passfd 3
.SH NAME
io_passfd \- pass a file descriptor over a Unix Domain socket
.SH SYNTAX
.B #include <libowfat/io.h>
int \fBio_passfd\fP(int64 sock,int64 fd);
.SH DESCRIPTION
io_passfd transfers the file descriptor \fIfd\fR over the Unix Domain
socket \fIsock\fR. This works much like dup(2), only that the copy of
the descriptor appears not in this process but at the other end of the
Unix Domain socket (which therefore must be a process on the same
system).
The peer can then use io_receivefd(3) to receive the file descriptor.
Note that the passed descriptor stays open in the sending process.
.SH "RETURN VALUE"
io_passfd returns 0 on success, -1 on error (setting errno accordingly).
.SH "SEE ALSO"
io_receivefd(3)
