io_destroy


SYNOPSIS
       #include <linux/aio_abi.h>          /* Defines needed types */

       int io_destroy(aio_context_t ctx_id);

       Note: There is no glibc wrapper for this system call; see NOTES.

DESCRIPTION
       The  io_destroy()  system  call  will attempt to cancel all outstanding
       asynchronous I/O operations against ctx_id, will block on  the  comple-
       tion of all operations that could not be canceled, and will destroy the
       ctx_id.

RETURN VALUE
       On success, io_destroy() returns 0.  For the failure return, see NOTES.

ERRORS
       EFAULT The context pointed to is invalid.

       EINVAL The AIO context specified by ctx_id is invalid.

       ENOSYS io_destroy() is not implemented on this architecture.

VERSIONS
       The asynchronous I/O system calls first appeared in Linux 2.5.

CONFORMING TO
       io_destroy() is Linux-specific and should not be used in programs  that
       are intended to be portable.

NOTES
       Glibc  does  not  provide a wrapper function for this system call.  You
       could invoke it using syscall(2).  But instead, you  probably  want  to
       use the io_destroy() wrapper function provided by libaio.

       Note  that  the  libaio wrapper function uses a different type (io_con-
       text_t) for the ctx_id argument.  Note also  that  the  libaio  wrapper
       does  not follow the usual C library conventions for indicating errors:
       on error it returns a negated error number (the negative of one of  the
       values   listed  in  ERRORS).   If  the  system  call  is  invoked  via
       syscall(2), then the return value follows  the  usual  conventions  for
       indicating  an  error:  -1,  with  errno set to a (positive) value that
       indicates the error.
