LFS_BMAPV(2)                  System Calls Manual                 LFS_BMAPV(2)

NAME
     lfs_bmapv -- retrieve disk addresses for arrays of blocks

LIBRARY
     Standard C Library (libc, -lc)

SYNOPSIS
     #include <&lt;sys/types.h>&gt;
     #include <&lt;ufs/lfs/lfs.h>&gt;

     int
     lfs_bmapv(fsid_t *fsidp, BLOCK_INFO *blkiov, int blkcnt);

DESCRIPTION
     lfs_bmapv() fills in the bi_daddr field for every block listed in the
     block array blkiov with the disk address corresponding to the logical
     block bi_lbn of the file with inode bi_inode.  If bi_lbn is
     LFS_UNUSED_LBN, the disk location of the inode block containing the
     file's inode will be returned in bi_daddr instead.

     The fsidp argument contains the id of the file system to which the inodes
     and blocks belong.  The blkiov argument is an array of BLOCK_INFO
     structures (see below).  The blkcnt argument determines the size of the
     blkiov array.

     typedef struct block_info {
         ino_t       bi_inode;     /* inode # */
         ufs_daddr_t bi_lbn;       /* logical block w/in file */
         ufs_daddr_t bi_daddr;     /* disk address of block */
         time_t      bi_segcreate; /* origin segment create time */
         int         bi_version;   /* file version number */
         void       *bi_bp;        /* data buffer */
         int         bi_size;      /* size of the block (if fragment) */
     } BLOCK_INFO;

RETURN VALUES
     lfs_bmapv() returns 0 on success, or -1 on error.

ERRORS
     An error return from lfs_bmapv() indicates:

     [EFAULT]           fsidp points outside the process's allocated address
                        space.

     [EINVAL]           *fsidp does not specify a valid file system.

HISTORY
     The lfs_bmapv() function call appeared in 4.4BSD.
