NAME

Genezzo::RawIO - Genezzo Raw IO

CONTENTS

SYNOPSIS



 Additional file read and write routines for Genezzo.



DESCRIPTION



 sysread and syswrite are wrapped by gen_raw_read and gen_raw_write
 so raw devices can be used.



FUNCTIONS

gen_raw_read FILEHANDLE, SCALAR, LENGTH


 Performs read identical to sysread, except uses aligned buffer
 suitable for raw I/O.



gen_raw_write FILEHANDLE, SCALAR, LENGTH


 Performs write identical to syswrite, except uses aligned buffer
 suitable for raw I/O.



    EXPORT



 gen_raw_read, gen_raw_write



LIMITATIONS



 Relies on Perl Inline::C module.  Code may gracefully compile to
 empty stubs on non-raw (non-Linux) platforms, but this has not
 been thoroughly tested.
