Sun Java System Web Server 6.1 SP11 NSAPI Programmer's Guide


The system_fread function reads a specified number of bytes from a specified file into a specified buffer. It returns the number of bytes read. Before system_fread can be used, you must open the file using any of the system_fopen functions (except system_fopenWA).


int system_fread(SYS_FILE fd, char *buf, int sz);


The number of bytes read, which may be less than the requested size if an error occurred or the end of the file was reached before that number of characters were obtained.


SYS_FILE fd is the platform-independent file descriptor.

char *buf is the buffer to receive the bytes.

int sz is the number of bytes to read.
