Description Philip Withnall 2012-12-19 21:40:00 UTC
The man page of recvmsg(2) does not mention that recvmsg() can legitimately return 0 in the case that the socket has closed and no received data is pending.

See the RETURN VALUE section in SUSv2: http://pubs.opengroup.org/onlinepubs/007908799/xns/recvmsg.html

How-To-Repeat: man recvmsg
