+.Dt UDPLITE 4
+.Nd Lightweight User Datagram Protocol
+.Fn socket AF_INET SOCK_STREAM IPPROTO_UDPLITE
+protocol provides a partial checksum which allows
+corrupted packets to be transmitted to the receiving
+This has advantages for some types of multimedia
+transport that may be able to make use of slightly
+damaged datagrams, rather than having them discarded
+by lower-layer protocols.
+supports a number of socket options which can be set with
+.Xr setsockopt 2
+and tested with
+.Xr getsockopt 2 :
+.Bl -tag -width ".Dv SCTP_SET_PEER_PRIMARY_ADDR"
+.It Dv UDPLITE_SEND_CSCOV
+This option sets the sender checksum coverage.
+A value of zero indicates that the entire packet
+is covered by the checksum.
+A value of 1 to 7 must be discarded by the receiver.
+.It Dv UDPLITE_RECV_CSCOV
+This option is the receiver-side analogue.
+It is truly optional, i.e. not required to enable traffic
+with partial checksum coverage.
+Its function is that of a traffic filter:
+when enabled, it instructs the kernel to drop
+all packets which have a coverage less than this value.
+A socket operation may fail with one of the following errors returned:
+.Bl -tag -width Er
+.It Bq Er EISCONN
+when trying to establish a connection on a socket which
+already has one, or when trying to send a datagram with the destination
+address specified and the socket is already connected;
+.It Bq Er ENOTCONN
+when trying to send a datagram, but
+no destination address is specified, and the socket has not been
+.It Bq Er ENOBUFS
+when the system runs out of memory for
+an internal data structure;
+.It Bq Er EADDRINUSE
+when an attempt
+is made to create a socket with a port which has already been
+.It Bq Er EADDRNOTAVAIL
+when an attempt is made to create a
+socket with a network address for which no network interface
