This is a bug report for perl from nick@ccl4.org,
generated with the help of perlbug 1.34 running under perl v5.8.3.


-----------------------------------------------------------------
[Please enter your report here]

Neither the core nor Socket supports the socket functions sendmsg and recvmsg.

Perhaps they should, as without them it's not possible to get/send ancillary
data. Then again, this is sufficiently low level that it's likely to be hard
to pack/unpack it without platform specific knowledge of the C structures
involved.
