NAME         top

       sctp_send - Send a message from a SCTP socket.

SYNOPSIS         top

       #include <sys/types.h>
       #include <sys/socket.h>
       #include <netinet/sctp.h>

       int sctp_send(int sd, const void * msg, size_t len,
                        const struct sctp_sndrcvinfo *sinfo,
                        uint32_t flags);

DESCRIPTION         top

       sctp_send is a wrapper library function that can be used to send a
       message from a socket without the use of the CMSG header structures.
       sd is the socket descriptor from which the message pointed to by msg
       of length len is sent.  sinfo is a pointer to a sctp_sndrcvinfo
       structure.  flags parameter is composed of a bitwise OR of the flags
       that can be be passed as the 3rd argument of a standard sendmsg()

RETURN VALUE         top

       On success, sctp_sendmsg returns the number of bytes sent or -1 if an
       error occurred.
