aio_return(2)               BSD System Calls Manual              aio_return(2)


NAME

     aio_return -- retrieve return status of asynchronous I/O operation (REAL-
     TIME)


LIBRARY

     Standard C Library (libc, -lc)


SYNOPSIS

     #include <aio.h>

     ssize_t
     aio_return(struct aiocb *aiocbp);


DESCRIPTION

     The aio_return() system call returns the final status of the asynchronous
     I/O request associated with the structure pointed to by aiocbp.

     The aio_return() system call should only be called once, to obtain the
     final status of an asynchronous I/O operation (once aio_error(2) returns
     something other than EINPROGRESS) and to clean up system resources. How-
     ever, if aio_return() is not called at all, aio(4) will leak resources.


RETURN VALUES

     If the asynchronous I/O request has completed, the status is returned as
     described in read(2), write(2), or fsync(2).  On failure, aio_return()
     returns -1 and sets errno to indicate the error condition.


ERRORS

     The aio_return() system call will fail if:

     [EINVAL]           The aiocbp argument does not reference an outstanding
                        asynchronous I/O request.

     [EINPROGRESS]      The asynchronous I/O request is still in progress.


LEGACY SYNOPSIS

     #include <aio.h>

     int
     aio_return(struct aiocb *aiocbp);

     The type of the return value has changed.


SEE ALSO

     aio_cancel(2), aio_error(2), aio_suspend(2), aio_write(2), fsync(2),
     read(2), write(2), aio(4), compat(5)


STANDARDS

     The aio_return() system call is expected to conform to the IEEE Std
     1003.1 (``POSIX.1'') standard.


HISTORY

     The aio_return() system call first appeared in FreeBSD 3.0.
