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

Files

/lib/64/libaio.so.1
