     A 0 is returned if the call succeeds, -1 if it fails.


     The call succeeds unless:

     [EBADF]       s is not a valid descriptor.

     [ENOTCONN]    The specified socket is not connected.

     The shutdown() function call appeared in 4.2BSD. The how arguments used
     to be simply 0, 1, and 2, but now have named values as specified by
     X/Open Portability Guide Issue 4 ("XPG4").
