AIO_RETURN(2) System Calls Manual AIO_RETURN(2)

aio_returnretrieve return status of asynchronous I/O operation (REALTIME)

Standard C Library (libc, -lc)

#include <aio.h>

ssize_t
aio_return(struct aiocb *aiocbp);

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

The () 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. However, if aio_return() is not called at all, aio(4) will leak resources.

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.

The aio_return() system call will fail if:

[]
The aiocbp argument does not reference an outstanding asynchronous I/O request.
[]
The asynchronous I/O request is still in progress.

#include <aio.h>

int
(struct aiocb *aiocbp);;

The type of the return value has changed.

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

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

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