[erlang-questions] inet:getopts

Yes, I am an idiot.  The problem, of course, is that S is the tuple
{ok,#Port<0.110>}.  It works fine when I actually pay attention:


32> {ok, S} = gen_tcp:connect("localhost", 1210, [{active, once}]).


33> inet:getopts(S, [active]).                                     



Sorry for the waste of bandwidth.

I can never get any good response out of inet:getopts/2:


1> S = gen_tcp:connect("localhost", 1210, [{active, once}]).


2> inet:getopts(S, [active]).                               


=ERROR REPORT==== 8-Aug-2007::10:36:53 ===

Error in process <0.62.0> with exit value:




** exited:



                             {shell,eval_loop,3}]} **


I have confirmed that I am successfully making the connection.  What am I
doing wrong?  I do not understand the error report.  Please advise.
