canputnext(9F)						   Kernel Functions for Drivers 					    canputnext(9F)

NAME
canputnext, bcanputnext - test for room in next module's message queue SYNOPSIS
#include <sys/stream.h> int canputnext(queue_t *q); int bcanputnext(queue_t *q, unsigned char pri); INTERFACE LEVEL
Architecture independent level 1 (DDI/DKI). PARAMETERS
q Pointer to a message queue belonging to the invoking module. pri Minimum priority level. DESCRIPTION
The invocation canputnext(q); is an atomic equivalent of the canput(q->q_next); routine. That is, the STREAMS framework provides whatever mutual exclusion is necessary to insure that dereferencing q through its q_next field and then invoking canput(9F) proceeds without inter- ference from other threads. bcanputnext(q, pri); is the equivalent of the bcanput(q->q_next, pri); routine. canputnext(q); and bcanputnext(q, pri); should always be used in preference to canput(q->q_next); and bcanput(q->q_next, pri); respec- tively. See canput(9F) and bcanput(9F) for further details. RETURN VALUES
1 If the message queue is not full. 0 If the queue is full. CONTEXT
canputnext() and bcanputnext() can be called from user or interrupt context. WARNINGS
Drivers are responsible for both testing a queue with canputnext() or bcanputnext() and refraining from placing a message on the queue if the queue is full. SEE ALSO
