io_submit - submit asynchronous I/O blocks for processing
#include /* Defines needed types */
int io_submit(aio_context_t ctx_id, long nr, struct iocb **iocbpp);
Note: There is no glibc wrapper for this system call; see NOTES.
The io_submit() system call queues nr I/O request blocks for
processing in the AIO context ctx_id. The iocbpp argument should be
an array of nr AIO control blocks, which will be submitted to context
On success, io_submit() returns the number of iocbs submitted (which
may be 0 if nr is zero). For the failure return, see NOTES.
EAGAIN Insufficient resources are available to queue any iocbs.
EBADF The file descriptor specified in the first iocb is invalid.
EFAULT One of the data structures points to invalid data.
EINVAL The AIO context specified by ctx_id is invalid. nr is less
than 0. The iocb at *iocbpp is not properly initialized,
or the operation specified is invalid for the file descriptor
in the iocb.
ENOSYS io_submit() is not implemented on this architecture.
The asynchronous I/O system calls first appeared in Linux 2.5.
io_submit() is Linux-specific and should not be used in programs that
are intended to be portable.
Glibc does not provide a wrapper function for this system call. You
could invoke it using syscall(2). But instead, you probably want to
use the io_submit() wrapper function provided by libaio.
Note that the libaio wrapper function uses a different type
(io_context_t) for the ctx_id argument. Note also that the libaio
wrapper does not follow the usual C library conventions for
indicating errors: on error it returns a negated error number (the
negative of one of the values listed in ERRORS). If the system call
is invoked via syscall(2), then the return value follows the usual
conventions for indicating an error: -1, with errno set to a
(positive) value that indicates the error.
