AIO_SUSPEND(2)		  FreeBSD System Calls Manual		AIO_SUSPEND(2)

NAME
     aio_suspend -- suspend until asynchronous I/O operations or timeout com-
     plete (REALTIME)

LIBRARY
     Standard C	Library	(libc, -lc)

SYNOPSIS
     #include <aio.h>

     int
     aio_suspend(const struct aiocb *const iocbs[], int	niocb,
	 const struct timespec *timeout);

DESCRIPTION
     The aio_suspend() system call suspends the	calling	process	until at least
     one of the	specified asynchronous I/O requests have completed, a signal
     is	delivered, or the timeout has passed.

     The iocbs argument	is an array of niocb pointers to asynchronous I/O
     requests.	Array members containing null pointers will be silently
     ignored.

     If	timeout	is not a null pointer, it specifies a maximum interval to sus-
     pend.  If timeout is a null pointer, the suspend blocks indefinitely.  To
     effect a poll, the	timeout	should point to	a zero-value timespec struc-
     ture.

RETURN VALUES
     If	one or more of the specified asynchronous I/O requests have completed,
     aio_suspend() returns 0.  Otherwise it returns -1 and sets	errno to indi-
     cate the error, as	enumerated below.

ERRORS
     The aio_suspend() system call will	fail if:

     [EAGAIN]		the timeout expired before any I/O requests completed.

     [EINVAL]		The iocbs argument contains more than AIO_LISTIO_MAX
			asynchronous I/O requests, or at least one of the
			requests is not	valid.

     [EINTR]		the suspend was	interrupted by a signal.

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

HISTORY
     The aio_suspend() system call first appeared in FreeBSD 3.0.
