bind a socket to a privileged IP port
cc ... -lsocket
struct sockaddr_in *sin;
is used to bind a socket descriptor to a privileged
that is, a port number in the range 0-1023.
The routine returns 0 if it is successful;
otherwise -1 is returned and
errno set to reflect the cause of the error.
Only root can bind to a privileged port;
this call will fail for any other users.
All routines in librpc and libyp
have been incorporated into libsocket.
libyp and libsocket have been retained
so that existing Makefiles will continue to work.
New code should be linked with libsocket.
