io_fd - prepare descriptor for io_wait SYNTAX
#include <io.h> int io_fd(int64 fd); DESCRIPTION
If you want to use io_canread() and io_canwrite() on a descriptor, you have to use io_wait() on it first, and io_wait() has to know which descriptors you are interested in. Use io_fd() for this. io_pipe and io_socketpair already call io_fd for you. Waiting on descriptors only works for sockets, fifos and pipes. It may also work on devices and TTYs, but that is platform dependent -- you should not rely on that. It does not work on files. RETURN VALUE
io_fd returns 1 on success, 0 on error. SEE ALSO

iob_write - send I/O batch through callback SYNTAX
#include <iob.h> typedef int64 (*io_write_callback)(int64 s,const void* buf,uint64 n); int64 iob_write(int64 s,io_batch* b,io_write_callback cb); DESCRIPTION
iob_write sends the (rest of) b through the callback cb, passing s as first argument. cb is expected to behave like io_trywrite(2). This interface is intended to send an I/O batch through a filter, for example to encrypt or compress it. If you just want to send an I/O batch to a socket, use iob_send instead. iob_write returns the number of bytes written, 0 if there were no more bytes to be written in the batch, -1 for EAGAIN, or -3 for a perma- nent error (for example "connection reset by peer"). The normal usage pattern is using io_wait to know when a descriptor is writable, and then calling iob_write until it returns 0, -1 or -3. If it returns 0, terminate the loop (everything was written OK). If it returns -1, call io_wait again. If it returned -3, signal an error. NOTE
iob_write will continue to call your callback until it returns an error. So if you are in a state machine, for example a web server using this for SSL support, make sure to write at most n bytes at a time (e.g. 64k) and the next time you are called return -1. Otherwise iob_write might not return until the whole file is served. SEE ALSO
