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 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   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 canceled 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.
        None.
