NAME

       aio_error - get error status of asynchronous I/O operation

SYNOPSIS

       #include <aio.h>

       int aio_error(const struct aiocb *aiocbp);

       Link with -lrt.

DESCRIPTION

       The  aio_error()  function  returns the error status for the asynchronous I/O request with
       control block pointed  to  by  aiocbp.   (See  aio(7)  for  a  description  of  the  aiocb
       structure.)

RETURN VALUE

       This function returns one of the following:

       *  EINPROGRESS, if the request has not been completed yet.

       *  ECANCELED, if the request was canceled.

       *  0, if the request completed successfully.

       *  A  positive  error,  if  the asynchronous I/O operation failed.  This is the same value
          that would have been stored in the errno variable in the case of a synchronous read(2),
          write(2), fsync(2), or fdatasync(2) call.

ERRORS

       EINVAL aiocbp  does  not point at a control block for an asynchronous I/O request of which
              the return status (see aio_return(3)) has not been retrieved yet.

VERSIONS

       The aio_error() function is available since glibc 2.1.
