AIO_RETURN(P)			    POSIX Programmer's Manual			    AIO_RETURN(P)

NAME
       aio_return - retrieve return status of an asynchronous I/O operation (REALTIME)

SYNOPSIS
       #include <aio.h>

       ssize_t aio_return(struct aiocb *aiocbp);

DESCRIPTION
       The  aio_return() function shall return the return status associated with the aiocb struc-
       ture referenced by the aiocbp argument. The return status for an asynchronous  I/O  opera-
       tion  is the value that would be returned by the corresponding read(), write(), or fsync()
       function call. If the error status for the operation is equal to [EINPROGRESS],	then  the
       return  status  for  the  operation  is undefined. The aio_return() function may be called
       exactly once to retrieve the return status of a given asynchronous operation;  thereafter,
       if the same aiocb structure is used in a call to aio_return() or aio_error(), an error may
       be returned.  When the aiocb structure referred to by aiocbp is	used  to  submit  another
       asynchronous  operation, then aio_return() may be successfully used to retrieve the return
       status of that operation.

RETURN VALUE
       If the asynchronous I/O operation has completed, then the return status, as described  for
       read(), write(), and fsync(), shall be returned. If the asynchronous I/O operation has not
       yet completed, the results of aio_return() are undefined.

ERRORS
       The aio_return() function may fail if:

       EINVAL The aiocbp argument does not refer to an asynchronous operation whose return status
	      has not yet been retrieved.

       The following sections are informative.

EXAMPLES
       None.

APPLICATION USAGE
       The aio_return() function is part of the Asynchronous Input and Output option and need not
       be available on all implementations.

RATIONALE
       None.

FUTURE DIRECTIONS
       None.
