POSIX 1003.1 - man page for aio.h (posix section 0p)

<aio.h>(P)			    POSIX Programmer's Manual			       <aio.h>(P)

NAME
       aio.h - asynchronous input and output (REALTIME)

SYNOPSIS
       #include <aio.h>

DESCRIPTION
       The  <aio.h> header shall define the aiocb structure which shall include at least the fol-
       lowing 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   Signal number and value.
	      int	      aio_lio_opcode Operation to be performed.

       This header shall also include 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 can-
	      celed since they are in progress.

       LIO_NOP
	      A lio_listio() 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_listio()  operation is being performed, and no
	      notification is 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() operation is complete.

       LIO_WRITE
	      A lio_listio() element operation option requesting a write.

       The  following  shall be declared as functions and may also be defined as macros. Function
       prototypes shall be provided.

	      int      aio_cancel(int, struct aiocb *);
	      int      aio_error(const struct aiocb *);
	      int      aio_fsync(int, struct aiocb *);
	      int      aio_read(struct aiocb *);
	      ssize_t  aio_return(struct aiocb *);
	      int      aio_suspend(const struct aiocb *const[], int,
			   const struct timespec *);
	      int      aio_write(struct aiocb *);
	      int      lio_listio(int, struct aiocb *restrict const[restrict], int,
			   struct sigevent *restrict);

       Inclusion of the <aio.h> header may make visible symbols defined in the headers <fcntl.h>,
       <signal.h>, <sys/types.h>, and <time.h>.

       The following sections are informative.

APPLICATION USAGE
       None.

RATIONALE
       None.

FUTURE DIRECTIONS
       None.
