NAME
       flush - Flush buffered output for a channel

SYNOPSIS
       flush channelId
_________________________________________________________________

DESCRIPTION
       Flushes	any  output  that  has	been buffered for channelId.  ChannelId must be a channel
       identifier such as returned by a previous open or socket command, and it  must  have  been
       opened  for writing.  If the channel is in blocking mode the command does not return until
       all the buffered output has been flushed to the channel. If the channel is in  nonblocking
       mode,  the  command  may return before all buffered output has been flushed; the remainder
       will be flushed in the background as fast as the underlying file  or  device  is  able  to
       absorb it.

SEE ALSO
       file(n), open(n), socket(n)

KEYWORDS
