    interesting error code returned from sento()

    hello everyone, im writing a multithreaded application that sends datagrams, i receive this error from errno:

    EILSEQ
    Illegal byte sequence. A wide-character code has been detected that does not correspond to a valid character, or a byte sequence does not form a valid wide-character code (defined in the ISO C standard).

    I'm confused, not sure exactly what the above error means. my code is on another machine, i can post it if someone wants, but im realy just looking for an explanation of what the above error means. If its helpful, i think it might have something to do with the struct sockaddr_in being invalid, does anyone know if that would cause this error? Thanks.

    with sorcery and magicks i got it working somehow, i think it was just a currupt socket address structure, because i was messing with the buffer i pass as an argument to the thread that runs the code and just moving around where things are stored and it worked. my bad. =x
