small typo in socket(7) man page

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]

Unless I'm missing an inside joke, the following paragraph in the
socket(7) man page mistakenly references bind(8) instead of bind(2).

              Bind this socket to a particular device like "eth0", as specified in
              the passed interface name.  If the name is an empty string or the
              option length is zero, the socket device binding is removed.  The
              passed option is a variable-length null-terminated interface name
              string with the maximum size of IFNAMSIZ.  If a socket is bound to an
              interface, only packets received from that particular interface are
              processed by the socket.  Note that this only works for some socket
              types, particularly AF_INET sockets.  It is not supported for packet
              sockets (use normal bind(8) there).
