socket_getifidx \- get interface number
.SH SYNTAX

int \fBsocket_getifidx\fP(const char* \fIifname\fR);
.SH DESCRIPTION
socket_getifidx returns the interface number for a symbolic network
interface name (like "eth0" on Linux, for example).

The interface number can be used as scope_id for IPv6 communications on
link-local addresses.

If something goes wrong, socket_getifidx returns -1, setting errno
appropriately.
