udp-open-socket #!optional familyprocedure
udp-open-socket* #!optional familyprocedure

Returns a new UDP socket object, which is simply a datagram socket object created by the socket egg.

The optional argument family can be 'inet for IPv4 or 'inet6 for IPv6; the default is 'inet.

(Note: The starred version is provided for API compatibility; it is exactly the same as the unstarred version, as all sockets in the socket egg are nonblocking at the OS level.)
