aio_suspend(2)              BSD System Calls Manual             aio_suspend(2)


NAME

     aio_suspend -- suspend until asynchronous I/O operations or timeout com-
     plete (REALTIME)


LIBRARY

     Standard C Library (libc, -lc)


SYNOPSIS

     #include <aio.h>

     int
     aio_suspend(const struct aiocb *const list[], int nent,
         const struct timespec *timeout);


DESCRIPTION

     The aio_suspend() system call suspends the calling process until at least
     one of the specified asynchronous I/O requests have completed, a signal
     is delivered, or the timeout has passed.

     The list argument is an array of nent pointers to asynchronous I/O
     requests.  Array members containing NULL will be silently ignored.

     If timeout is a non-nil pointer, it specifies a maximum interval to sus-
     pend.  If timeout is a nil pointer, the suspend blocks indefinitely.  To
     effect a poll, the timeout should point to a zero-value timespec struc-
     ture.


RETURN VALUES

     If one or more of the specified asynchronous I/O requests have completed,
     aio_suspend() returns 0.  Otherwise, it returns -1 and sets errno to
     indicate the error, as enumerated below.


ERRORS

     The aio_suspend() system call will fail if:

     [EAGAIN]           The timeout expired before any of the listed I/O
                        requests completed.

     [EINTR]            The suspend was interrupted by a signal.

     [EINVAL]           The list argument contains more than AIO_LISTIO_MAX
                        asynchronous I/O requests, or at least one of the
                        requests is not valid.

STANDARDS

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


HISTORY

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