NAME


eventfd - Linux-compatible user event notification facility

SYNOPSIS


#include <sys/eventfd.h>

DESCRIPTION


eventfd is a Linux-borne facility for sending and receiving user events via
a file descriptor. While the facility itself is somewhat dubious (it can
be mimicked in an entirely portable way with a pipe), it is small and
straightforward and this implementation is entirely compatible with its
Linux antecedent; see eventfd(3C) for details.
