nit: might be worthwhile adding a comment that explains what -48 means.

@jasnell That unfortunately I don't know. I believe @addaleax does?

I believe -48 is the libuv error for UV_EADDRINUSE. In any event, it's a libuv error.

I don't think this is OS X specific. It will happen on anything (or at least anything POSIX?) with a long enough path. I think you can just remove the comment (no one's going to wonder "why aren't they using an absolute path here??!!") or use a comment like this:

// Use relative path to avoid hitting 128-char length limit for socket paths in libuv.

/cc @addaleax to make sure I got that right (that it's 128 chars, that it's in libuv, etc.).

@Trott 108 should be the right number on Linux and almost certainly other systems too¹², quote unix(7):

struct sockaddr_un {
    sa_family_t sun_family;               /* AF_UNIX */
    char        sun_path[108];            /* pathname */

It’s this bit of code in libuv that truncates the path to that size. The actual value for EADDRINUSE is OS-dependent; for example, for me on Linux it’s 98 (which libuv forwards as -98).

See also #12708, I think that’s the same kind of problem.

¹ edit: yeah, your guess of “anything POSIX” sounds right, Windows doesn’t have UNIX sockets. ;)

² more edits: has numbers, it’s somewhere between 92 and 108.

const prefix = path.relative('.', `${common.PIPE}-net-connect-options-fd`);
const serverPath = `${prefix}-server`;
let counter = 0;
let socketCounter = 0;
