Inconsistency in the socket options: Interesting socket behavior?

+3 votes

I noticed that if I make a listening socket using SOCK_STREAM | SOCK_NONBLOCK, that the sockets I get after calling listener.accept() dont have the O_NONBLOCK flag set, but checking the result of gettimeout() on the same sockets gives me 0.0, which means they are non blocking. Why is this the case?

Is it right that it is used to bind Port number with IP?
If it is, then What is the need of binding it? and Why it is not present in UDP?
And also, What is the use of listen(5) ?
Does it mean that server can be connected maximum to 5 client? or it means that if server is busy with other client then 5 more client can be in queue.?
and also, What is the use of select() ?
As far as i know it is used when we want to monitor continuously input/output for that particular file descriptor.
is it correct?
If yes, then why it is used only when accepting connection request from multiple client.?

As per my understanding Receive system calls will be a blocking call of the code... it will not go ahead unless it receives the response from client .. my question is how would i set time in that? i want my code should wait only for few seconds then it has to come out from that
