LIBAIO(3LIB) Interface Libraries LIBAIO(3LIB)


NAME


libaio - asynchronous I/O library

SYNOPSIS


cc [ flag... ] file... -laio [ library... ]


DESCRIPTION


Historically, functions in this library provided asynchronous I/O
operations. This functionality now resides in libc(3LIB)


This library is maintained to provide backward compatibility for both
runtime and compilation environments. The shared object is
implemented as a filter on libc.so.1. New application development need
not specify -laio.

INTERFACES


The shared object libaio.so.1 provides the public interfaces defined
below. See Intro(3) for additional information on shared object
interfaces.


aiocancel aioread
aiowait aiowrite
assfail close
fork sigaction


The following interfaces are unique to the 32-bit version of this
library:


aioread64 aiowrite64
