Manual Reference Pages - AIO_WRITE (2)
- asynchronous write to a file (REALTIME)
aio_write struct aiocb *iocb
system call allows the calling process to write
from the buffer pointed to by
to the descriptor
The call returns immediately after the write request has been enqueued
to the descriptor; the write may or may not have completed at the time
the call returns.
If the request could not be enqueued, generally due
to invalid arguments, the call returns without having enqueued the

operation is submitted at a priority equal to that of the calling

while it is in progress.
If the request is successfully enqueued, the value of
can be modified during the request as context, so this value must not
be referenced after the request is enqueued.
The Asynchronous I/O Control Block structure pointed to by
and the buffer that the
member of that structure references must remain valid until the
operation has completed.
For this reason, use of auto (stack) variables
for these objects is discouraged.
The asynchronous I/O control buffer
should be zeroed before the
system call to avoid passing bogus context information to the kernel.
Modifications of the Asynchronous I/O Control Block structure or the
buffer contents after the request has been enqueued, but before the
request has completed, are not allowed.
If the file offset in
is past the offset maximum for
no I/O will occur.
