Final Accepted Text
Summary 0001475: socket() and shutdown() should refer to close()
Description The socket() function description does not mention that the file descriptor returned should eventually be closed with the close() function. The see-also section mentions several related functions such as shutdown() but omits close(), and a reader may wrongly conclude that the proper way to relinquish the resources obtained through socket() is to merely call shutdown() as the shutdown() description makes no mention of close() as well.
Desired Action In the shutdown() Application Usage, line 61830, replace "None" with "The file descriptor remains open after shutdown() returns to the calling application."

In the "See Also" sections for shutdown() and socket(), add a reference to the close() function.
