socket_bind — Binds a name to a socket
A valid socket resource created with socket_create().
If the socket is of the AF_INET family, the address is an IP in dotted-quad notation (e.g. 127.0.0.1).
If the socket is of the AF_UNIX family, the address is the path of a Unix-domain socket (e.g. /tmp/my.sock).
The port parameter is only used when connecting to an AF_INET socket, and designates the port on the remote host to which a connection should be made.
Returns TRUE on success or FALSE on failure.
Example #1 Using socket_bind() to set the source address
// Create a new socket
$sock = socket_create(AF_INET, SOCK_STREAM, SOL_TCP);
// An example list of IP addresses owned by the computer
$sourceips['kevin'] = '127.0.0.1';
$sourceips['madcoder'] = '127.0.0.2';
// Bind the source address
// Connect to destination address
socket_connect($sock, '127.0.0.1', 80);
$request = 'GET / HTTP/1.1' . "\r\n" .
'Host: example.com' . "\r\n\r\n";
This function must be used on the socket before socket_connect().
Windows 9x/ME compatibility note: socket_last_error() may return an invalid error code if trying to bind the socket to a wrong address that does not belong to your machine.
