If the differences were significant, I would be the first one to duck

XTI/TLI has predominantly a one to one call equivilence with sockets

t_open = socket
t_bind = bind
t_listen = listen
t_accept = accept
t_connect = connect

and so on.

There may be some parameter coercion necessary, but that should not be
too much of a problem. This all comes from memory ( I wrote a TLI streams
driver a little while ago ), so, once I do the analysis, if I see any
problems, I'll come back to the group on it.
