NAME
posix_spawn_file_actions_adddup2 - add dup2 action to spawn file actions object (ADVANCED REALTIME)
SYNOPSIS
#include <spawn.h> int posix_spawn_file_actions_adddup2(posix_spawn_file_actions_t * file_actions, int fildes, int newfildes);
DESCRIPTION
The posix_spawn_file_actions_adddup2() function shall add a dup2() action to the object referenced by file_actions that shall cause the file descriptor fildes to be duplicated as newfildes (as if dup2( fildes, newfildes) had been called) when a new process is spawned using this file actions object. A spawn file actions object is as defined in posix_spawn_file_actions_addclose() .
RETURN VALUE
Upon successful completion, the posix_spawn_file_actions_adddup2() function shall return zero; otherwise, an error number shall be returned to indicate the error.
ERRORS
The posix_spawn_file_actions_adddup2() function shall fail if: EBADF The value specified by fildes or newfildes is negative or greater than or equal to {OPEN_MAX}. ENOMEM Insufficient memory exists to add to the spawn file actions object. The posix_spawn_file_actions_adddup2() function may fail if: EINVAL The value specified by file_actions is invalid. It shall not be considered an error for the fildes argument passed to the posix_spawn_file_actions_adddup2() function to specify a file descriptor for which the specified operation could not be performed at the time of the call. Any such error will be detected when the asso- ciated file actions object is later used during a posix_spawn() or posix_spawnp() operation. The following sections are informative.
EXAMPLES
None.
APPLICATION USAGE
The posix_spawn_file_actions_adddup2() function is part of the Spawn option and need not be provided on all implementations.
RATIONALE
Refer to the RATIONALE in posix_spawn_file_actions_addclose() .
FUTURE DIRECTIONS
None.
