sendto's Man Page says a non-blocking sendto may return without sending the whole Buffer. What good is sending a broken Datagram?

Return Value

If no error occurs, sendto returns the total number of bytes sent, which can be less than the number indicated by len. Otherwise, a value of SOCKET_ERROR is returned, and a specific error code can be retrieved by calling WSAGetLastError.


sendto is not UDP specific. Berkeley socket API is oooold, and includes a lot of now obsolete, unused or inapplicable concepts.
