socket_last_error

(PHP 4 >= 4.1.0, PHP 5)

socket_last_errorReturns the last error on the socket

Description

int socket_last_error ([ resource $socket ] )

If a socket resource is passed to this function, the last error which occurred on this particular socket is returned. If the socket resource is omitted, the error code of the last failed socket function is returned. The latter is particularly helpful for functions like socket_create() which don't return a socket on failure and socket_select() which can fail for reasons not directly tied to a particular socket. The error code is suitable to be fed to socket_strerror() which returns a string describing the given error code.

Parameters

socket

A valid socket resource created with socket_create().

Return Values

This function returns a socket error code.

Examples

Example #1 socket_last_error() example

<?php
$socket 
= @socket_create(AF_INETSOCK_STREAMSOL_TCP);

if (
$socket === false) {
    
$errorcode socket_last_error();
    
$errormsg socket_strerror($errorcode);
    
    die(
"Couldn't create socket: [$errorcode$errormsg");
}
?>

Notes

Note:

socket_last_error() does not clear the error code, use socket_clear_error() for this purpose.

This is a bit long, but personally I prefer to use the standard C defines in my code.

<?php

define
('ENOTSOCK',      88);    /* Socket operation on non-socket */
define('EDESTADDRREQ'89);    /* Destination address required */
define('EMSGSIZE',      90);    /* Message too long */
define('EPROTOTYPE',    91);    /* Protocol wrong type for socket */
define('ENOPROTOOPT',   92);    /* Protocol not available */
define('EPROTONOSUPPORT', 93);  /* Protocol not supported */
define('ESOCKTNOSUPPORT', 94);  /* Socket type not supported */
define('EOPNOTSUPP',    95);    /* Operation not supported on transport endpoint */
define('EPFNOSUPPORT'96);    /* Protocol family not supported */
define('EAFNOSUPPORT'97);    /* Address family not supported by protocol */
define('EADDRINUSE',    98);    /* Address already in use */
define('EADDRNOTAVAIL', 99);    /* Cannot assign requested address */
define('ENETDOWN',      100);   /* Network is down */
define('ENETUNREACH',   101);   /* Network is unreachable */
define('ENETRESET',     102);   /* Network dropped connection because of reset */
define('ECONNABORTED'103);   /* Software caused connection abort */
define('ECONNRESET',    104);   /* Connection reset by peer */
define('ENOBUFS',       105);   /* No buffer space available */
define('EISCONN',       106);   /* Transport endpoint is already connected */
define('ENOTCONN',      107);   /* Transport endpoint is not connected */
define('ESHUTDOWN',     108);   /* Cannot send after transport endpoint shutdown */
define('ETOOMANYREFS'109);   /* Too many references: cannot splice */
define('ETIMEDOUT',     110);   /* Connection timed out */
define('ECONNREFUSED'111);   /* Connection refused */
define('EHOSTDOWN',     112);   /* Host is down */
define('EHOSTUNREACH'113);   /* No route to host */
define('EALREADY',      114);   /* Operation already in progress */
define('EINPROGRESS',   115);   /* Operation now in progress */
define('EREMOTEIO',     121);   /* Remote I/O error */
