HUGETLBFS_UNLINKED_FD(3)		       Library Functions Manual 		     HUGETLBFS_UNLINKED_FD(3)

NAME
hugetlbfs_unlinked_fd, hugetlbfs_unlinked_fd_for_size - Obtain a file descriptor for a new unlinked file in hugetlbfs
SYNOPSIS
#include <hugetlbfs.h> int hugetlbfs_unlinked_fd(void); int hugetlbfs_unlinked_fd_for_size(long page_size);
DESCRIPTION
These functions return an open file descriptor for a unique, newly-created file in a hugetlbfs filesystem. To avoid leaking hugepages, the file is unlinked automatically before the function returns. For hugetlbfs_unlinked_fd, the default huge page size is used (see gethugepagesize(3)). For hugetlbfs_unlinked_fd_for_size, a valid huge page size must be specified (see gethugepagesizes(3)).
RETURN VALUE
On success, a valid open file descriptor is returned. On failure, -1 is returned and errno may be set appro- priately.
