sctp_sendmsg - Send a message from a SCTP socket.

sctp_sendmsg is a wrapper library function that can be used to send a
message from a socket while using the advanced features of SCTP. sd is
the socket descriptor from which the message pointed to by msg of
length len is sent. to is the destination address of the message
and tolen is the length of the destination address. stream_no
identifies the stream number that the application wishes to send this message
to. flags parameter is composed of a bitwise OR of the following
- This flags requests the un-ordered delivery of the message.
- This flag, in the one-to-many style, requests the SCTP stack to override
the primary destination address with address specified in to.
- Setting this flag causes the specified association to abort by sending an
ABORT message to the peer(one-to-many style only). The ABORT chunk will
contain an error cause 'User Initiated Abort' with cause code 12. The
cause specific information of this error cause is provided in
- Setting this flag invokes the SCTP graceful shutdown procedure on the
specific association(one-to-many style only).
timetolive specifies the time duration in milliseconds. The
sending side will expire the message if the message has not been sent to the
peer within this time period. A value of 0 indicates that no timeout should
occur on this message. ppid is an opaque unsigned value that is
passed to the remote end along with the message. context is a 32 bit
opaque value that is passed back to the upper layer along with the
undelivered message if an error occurs on the send of the message.
On success, sctp_sendmsg returns the number of bytes sent or -1 if an
