AIO_RETURN(3P) POSIX Programmer s Manual AIO_RETURN(3P)

PROLOG This manual page is part of the POSIX Programmer s Manual. The Linux implementation of this interface may differ (consult the corresponding Linux manual page for details of Linux behavior), or the interface may not be implemented on Linux.

NAME aio_return - retrieve return status of an asynchronous I/O operation (REALTIME)

SYNOPSIS #include <aio.h>

ssize_t aio_return(struct aiocb *aiocbp);

DESCRIPTION The aio_return() function shall return the return status associated with the aiocb structure referenced by the aiocbp argument. The return status for an asynchronous I/O operation is the value that would be returned by the corresponding read(), write(), or fsync() function call. If the error status for the operation is equal to [EINPROGRESS], then the return status for the operation is undefined. The aio_return() function may be called exactly once to retrieve the return status of a given asynchronous operation; thereafter, if the same aiocb structure is used in a call to aio_return() or aio_error(), an error may be returned. When the aiocb structure referred to by aiocbp is used to submit another asynchronous operation, then aio_return() may be suc- cessfully used to retrieve the return status of that operation.

RETURN VALUE If the asynchronous I/O operation has completed, then the return sta- tus, as described for read(), write(), and fsync(), shall be returned. If the asynchronous I/O operation has not yet completed, the results of aio_return() are undefined.

ERRORS The aio_return() function may fail if:

EINVAL The aiocbp argument does not refer to an asynchronous operation whose return status has not yet been retrieved.

The following sections are informative.

EXAMPLES None.

APPLICATION USAGE The aio_return() function is part of the Asynchronous Input and Output option and need not be available on all implementations.

RATIONALE None.

FUTURE DIRECTIONS None.
