NAME

       io_prep_pread - Set up asynchronous read

SYNOPSYS

       #include <errno.h>

       #include <libaio.h>

       inline void io_prep_pread(struct iocb *iocb, int fd, void *buf, size_t count, long long offset);
       "

       struct iocb {
            void      *data;
            unsigned  key;
            short          aio_lio_opcode;
            short          aio_reqprio;
            int       aio_fildes;
       };

DESCRIPTION

       io_prep_pread  is an inline convenience function designed to facilitate
       the initialization of the iocb for an asynchronous read operation.

       The first  iocb->u.c.nbytes  =  count  bytes  of  the  file  for  which
       iocb->aio_fildes  =  fd  is  a  descriptor  are  written  to the buffer
       starting at iocb->u.c.buf  =  buf.   Reading  starts  at  the  absolute
       position ioc->u.c.offset = offset in the file.

       This  function  returns  immediately.  To  schedule  the operation, the
       function io_submit must be called.

       Simultaneous  asynchronous  operations  using  the  same  iocb  produce
       undefined results.

RETURN VALUES

       None.

ERRORS

       None.
