TIMEOUT_FDOPEN(3)	 BSD Library Functions Manual	     TIMEOUT_FDOPEN(3)

NAME
     timeout_fdopen -- I/O streams with	timeouts

LIBRARY
     PDEL Library (libpdel, -lpdel)

SYNOPSIS
     #include <sys/types.h>
     #include <stdio.h>
     #include <pdel/io/timeout_fp.h>

     FILE *
     timeout_fdopen(int	fd, const char *mode, int timeout);

DESCRIPTION
     timeout_fdopen() is equivalent to fdopen(3) with the addition of an en-
     forced timeout on read or write operations	on the underlying file de-
     scriptor fd.

     If	any read or write operation blocks for longer than timeout seconds, an
     error is returned with errno set to ETIMEDOUT.

     If	timeout	is zero	or negative, no	timeout	is imposed and the behavior is
     identical to fdopen(3).

     fclose(3) should be used to close the returned stream.

RETURN VALUES
     timeout_fdopen() returns NULL to indicate an error, with errno set	appro-
     priately.

SEE ALSO
     fdopen(3),	libpdel(3)
