aio.h(3HEAD) Headers aio.h(3HEAD)
aio.h, aio - asynchronous input and output
The <aio.h> header defines the aiocb structure which includes the following members:
int aio_fildes file descriptor
off_t aio_offset file offset
volatile void* aio_buf location of buffer
size_t aio_nbytes length of transfer
int aio_reqprio request priority offset
struct sigevent aio_sigevent notification type
int aio_lio_opcode listio operation
This header also includes the following constants:
AIO_ALLDONE A return value indicating that none of the requested operations could be canceled since they are already complete.
AIO_CANCELED A return value indicating that all requested operations have been canceled.
AIO_NOTCANCELED A return value indicating that some of the requested operations could not be canceled since they are in progress.
LIO_NOP A lio_listio(3C) element operation option indicating that no transfer is requested.
LIO_NOWAIT A lio_listio() synchronization operation indicating that the calling thread is to continue execution while the lio_lis-
tio() operation is being performed, and notification is to be given when the operation is complete.
LIO_READ A lio_listio() element operation option requesting a read.
LIO_WAIT A lio_listio() synchronization operation indicating that the calling thread is to suspend until the lio_listio() opera-
tion is complete.
LIO_WRITE A lio_listio() element operation option requesting a write.
lseek(2), read(2), write(2), fsync(3C), libaio(3LIB), lio_listio(3C)
