.TH io_socketpair 3
.SH NAME
io_socketpair \- create a pair of sockets
.SH SYNTAX
.B #include <libowfat/io.h>
int \fBio_socketpair\fP(int64 pfd[2]);
.SH DESCRIPTION
io_socketpair creates a new UNIX socket pair and writes both descriptors
to \fId\fR. The socket pair works much like a pipe, but it is
bidirectional (i.e. both descriptors are for reading and writing).
io_socketpair returns 1 to indicate success. If something goes wrong,
io_socketpair returns 0, setting errno to indicate the error; in this
case it frees any memory that it allocated for the new socketpair, and
it leaves \fId\fR alone.
