Additions to the XTI Interface
The XNS 5 (UNIX03) standard introduces some new XTI interfaces. These are briefly

Send data or expedited data from one or more non-contiguous buffers on a connection

release indication or confirmation containing user data.
Note - The additional interfaces t_sndreldata(3NSL) and t_rcvreldata(3NSL) are used only with a specific
transport called minimal OSI, which is not available on the Solaris platform. These
interfaces are not available for use in conjunction with Internet Transports (TCP or
