NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

     aio_cancel -- cancel an outstanding asynchronous I/O operation (REALTIME)

LIBRARY    [Toc]    [Back]

     Standard C Library (libc, -lc)

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

     #include <aio.h>

     aio_cancel(int fildes, struct aiocb * iocb);

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

     The aio_cancel() system call cancels the outstanding asynchronous I/O
     request for the file descriptor specified in fildes.  If iocb is specified,
 only that specific asynchronous I/O request is cancelled.

     Normal asynchronous notification occurs for cancelled requests.  Requests
     complete with an error result of ECANCELED.

RESTRICTIONS    [Toc]    [Back]

     The aio_cancel() system call does not cancel asynchronous I/O requests
     for raw disk devices.  The aio_cancel() system call will always return
     AIO_NOTCANCELED for file descriptors associated with raw disk devices.

RETURN VALUES    [Toc]    [Back]

     The aio_cancel() system call returns -1 to indicate an error, or one of
     the following:

		   All outstanding requests meeting the criteria specified
		   were cancelled.

		   Some requests were not cancelled, status for the requests
		   should be checked with aio_error(2).

		   All of the requests meeting the criteria have finished.

ERRORS    [Toc]    [Back]

     An error return from aio_cancel() indicates:

     [EBADF]		The fildes argument is an invalid file descriptor.

SEE ALSO    [Toc]    [Back]

     aio_error(2), aio_read(2), aio_return(2), aio_suspend(2), aio_write(2),

STANDARDS    [Toc]    [Back]

     The aio_cancel() system call is expected to conform to the IEEE Std
     1003.1 (``POSIX.1'') standard.

HISTORY    [Toc]    [Back]

     The aio_cancel() system call first appeared in FreeBSD 3.0.  The first
     functional implementation of aio_cancel() appeared in FreeBSD 4.0.
