NAME

aio_return - get return status of asynchronous I/O operation  

SYNOPSIS

#include <aio.h>

ssize_t aio_return(struct aiocb *aiocbp);

Link with -lrt.  

DESCRIPTION

The aio_return() function returns the final return status for the asynchronous I/O request with control block pointed to by aiocbp. (See aio(7) for a description of the aiocb structure.)

This function should be called only once for any given request, after aio_error(3) returns something other than EINPROGRESS.  

RETURN VALUE

If the asynchronous I/O operation has completed, this function returns the value that would have been returned in case of a synchronous read(2), write(2), fsync(2) or fdatasync(2), call. On error, -1 is returned, and errno is set appropriately.

If the asynchronous I/O operation has not yet completed, the return value and effect of aio_return() are undefined.  

ERRORS

EINVAL
aiocbp does not point at a control block for an asynchronous I/O request of which the return status has not been retrieved yet.
ENOSYS
aio_return() is not implemented.
 

VERSIONS

The aio_return() function is available since glibc 2.1.
