- asynchronous I/O library
cc [ flag... ] file... -laio [ library... ]
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.
The shared object libaio.so.1 provides the public interfaces defined below. See Intro(3) for additional information on shared object interfaces.
The following interfaces are unique to the 32-bit version of this library:
