PROBLEM 1: The b18 version of sys/socket.h declares the second
parameter of cygwin32_recvfrom to be char *. This should be changed
to void * as was done for all the other calls that take buffers (such
PROBLEM 2: This same sys/socket.h does not define the SO_* macros.
The Unix versions of that file usually do define them. Should
the following definitions, or something equivalent, be added?
#define SO_SNDBUF 0x1001 /* send buffer size */
#define SO_RCVBUF 0x1002 /* receive buffer size */
#define SO_SNDLOWAT 0x1003 /* send low-water mark */
#define SO_RCVLOWAT 0x1004 /* receive low-water mark */
#define SO_SNDTIMEO 0x1005 /* send timeout */
#define SO_RCVTIMEO 0x1006 /* receive timeout */
#define SO_ERROR 0x1007 /* get error status and clear */
#define SO_TYPE 0x1008 /* get socket type */
Is there another, perhaps better, way to allow setsockopt and
getsockopt to be called that I have overlooked?
