posix_spawn_file_actions_adddup2(3C)			   Standard C Library Functions 		      posix_spawn_file_actions_adddup2(3C)

NAME
posix_spawn_file_actions_adddup2 - add dup2 action to spawn file actions object 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 adds a dup2(3C) action to the object referenced by file_actions that causes 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(3C). RETURN VALUES
Upon successful completion, the posix_spawn_file_actions_adddup2() function returns 0. Otherwise, an error number is be returned to indi- cate the error. ERRORS
The posix_spawn_file_actions_adddup2() function will 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 is not considered an error for the fildes argument passed to posix_spawn_file_actions_adddup2() 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 associated file actions object is later used during a posix_spawn(3C) or posix_spawnp(3C) operation. ATTRIBUTES

POSIX_SPAWN_FILE_ACTIONS_ADDOPEN(3)			   BSD Library Functions Manual 		       POSIX_SPAWN_FILE_ACTIONS_ADDOPEN(3)

NAME
posix_spawn_file_actions_addopen, posix_spawn_file_actions_adddup2, posix_spawn_file_actions_addclose -- add open, dup2 or close action to spawn file actions object LIBRARY
Standard C Library (libc, -lc) SYNOPSIS
#include <spawn.h> int posix_spawn_file_actions_addopen(posix_spawn_file_actions_t * file_actions, int fildes, const char *restrict path, int oflag, mode_t mode); int posix_spawn_file_actions_adddup2(posix_spawn_file_actions_t * file_actions, int fildes, int newfildes); int posix_spawn_file_actions_addclose(posix_spawn_file_actions_t * file_actions, int fildes); DESCRIPTION
These functions add an open, dup2 or close action to a spawn file actions object. A spawn file actions object is of type posix_spawn_file_actions_t (defined in <spawn.h>) and is used to specify a series of actions to be performed by a posix_spawn() or posix_spawnp() operation in order to arrive at the set of open file descriptors for the child process given the set of open file descriptors of the parent. A spawn file actions object, when passed to posix_spawn() or posix_spawnp(), specify how the set of open file descriptors in the calling process is transformed into a set of potentially open file descriptors for the spawned process. This transformation is as if the specified sequence of actions was performed exactly once, in the context of the spawned process (prior to execution of the new process image), in the order in which the actions were added to the object; additionally, when the new process image is executed, any file descriptor (from this new set) which has its FD_CLOEXEC flag set is closed (see posix_spawn()). The posix_spawn_file_actions_addopen() function adds an open action to the object referenced by file_actions that causes the file named by path to be opened (as if open(path, oflag, mode) had been called, and the returned file descriptor, if not fildes, had been changed to fildes) when a new process is spawned using this file actions object. If fildes was already an open file descriptor, it is closed before the new file is opened. The string described by path is copied by the posix_spawn_file_actions_addopen() function. The posix_spawn_file_actions_adddup2() function adds a dup2 action to the object referenced by file_actions that causes 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. The posix_spawn_file_actions_addclose() function adds a close action to the object referenced by file_actions that causes the file descriptor fildes to be closed (as if close(fildes) had been called) when a new process is spawned using this file actions object. RETURN VALUES
Upon successful completion, these functions return zero; otherwise, an error number is returned to indicate the error. ERRORS
These functions fail if: [EINVAL] The value specified by file_actions is invalid. [EBADF] The value specified by fildes or newfildes is negative. [ENOMEM] Insufficient memory exists to add to the spawn file actions object. SEE ALSO
close(2), dup2(2), open(2), posix_spawn(3), posix_spawn_file_actions_destroy(3), posix_spawn_file_actions_init(3), posix_spawnp(3) STANDARDS
The posix_spawn_file_actions_addopen(), posix_spawn_file_actions_adddup2() and posix_spawn_file_actions_addclose() functions conform to IEEE Std 1003.1-2001 (``POSIX.1''). HISTORY
The posix_spawn_file_actions_addopen(), posix_spawn_file_actions_adddup2() and posix_spawn_file_actions_addclose() functions first appeared in FreeBSD 8.0 and imported for NetBSD 6. AUTHORS
