ROSE(4)                    Linux Programmer's Manual                   ROSE(4)



NAME
       AF_ROSE - Rose amateur packet radio protocol family

DESCRIPTION
       Rose  is  a protocol used extensively by radio amateurs. The Linux Rose
       protocol family permits access(2,5) to these protocols via the standard net-
       working socket(2,7,n) metaphor.

       The Rose protocol layer only supports connected mode.

       The only mode of operation is connected mode which is the mode used for
       a socket(2,7,n) of type SOCK_SEQPACKET (stream sockets are  not  available  in(1,8)
       Rose).   This  requires  that  the user ensures output data is suitably
       packetised, and that input data is read(2,n,1 builtins) a  packet  at  a  time(1,2,n)  into  a
       buffer of suitable size.

       Rose  addresses  consist  of  10 digits. These are encoded into a sock-
       addr_rose structure which is provided to the relevant system calls.

       Rose has some unusual properties. Notably in(1,8)  a  multi-user  system  an
       AX.25  address  is often associated with a user, and some users(1,5) may not
       have such an association. a set(7,n,1 builtins) of ioctl calls are provided  to  manage
       an association table.

       Rose supports the following socket(2,7,n) options for SOL_ROSE. ROSE_T1 is the
       T11/T21 timer in(1,8) 1/10ths of a second, ROSE_T2 is the T12/T22  timer  in(1,8)
       1/10ths of a second. ROSE_T3, is the T13/T23 timer in(1,8) 1/10ths of a sec-
       ond.  It is possible for an application to request that the Rose  layer
       return  the  Rose  header as well as the application data, this is done
       via the ROSE_HDRINCL socket(2,7,n) option.
