NAME

       comedi_do_insnlist - perform multiple instructions

SYNOPSIS

       #include <comedilib.h>

       int comedi_do_insnlist (comedi_t * device, comedi_insnlist * list);

DESCRIPTION

       The  function  comedi_do_insnlist()  performs  multiple Comedi instructions as part of one
       system call.  In addition, Comedi attempts to perform the  instructions  atomically,  that
       is, on standard Linux kernels, no process preemption should occur during the instructions.
       However, the process may be preempted before or after the group of instructions.

       This function can be used to avoid the overhead of multiple system  calls,  or  to  ensure
       that multiple instructions occur without significant delay between them.

       Preemption  may  occur  if  any  of  the  instructions  or  the  data arrays of any of the
       instructions exist in non-resident or copy-on-write pages.

RETURN VALUE

       The  function  comedi_do_insnlist()  returns   the   number   of   sucessfully   completed
       instructions.   Error  information  for  the unsucessful instruction is not available.  If
       there is an error before the first instruction can be executed, -1 is returned.
