AIO_RETURN(3)              Library Functions Manual              AIO_RETURN(3)

NAME
     aio_return -- retrieve return status of asynchronous I/O operation
     (REALTIME)

LIBRARY
     POSIX Real-time Library (librt, -lrt)

SYNOPSIS
     #include <&lt;aio.h>&gt;

     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 it has completed
     (aio_error(3) returns something other than EINPROGRESS).

RETURN VALUES
     If the asynchronous I/O request has completed, the status is returned as
     described in read(2), write(2), or fsync(2).  Otherwise, 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 a completed
                        asynchronous I/O request.

SEE ALSO
     fsync(2), read(2), write(2), aio(3)

STANDARDS
     The aio_return() system call is expected to conform to the IEEE Std
     1003.1-2001 (``POSIX.1'') standard.

HISTORY
     The aio_return() system call first appeared in NetBSD 5.0.
