SYNOPSIS

#include <libaio.h>

int io_destroy (io_context_t ctx);

 

DESCRIPTION

io_destroy() removes the asynchronous I/O context from the list of I/O contexts and then destroys it. io_destroy() can also cancel any outstanding asynchronous I/O actions on ctx and block on completion.

 

RETURN VALUE

io_destroy() returns 0 on success.

 

ERRORS

EINVAL
The AIO context specified by ctx is invalid.

EFAULT
The context pointed to is invalid.

ENOSYS
io_destroy() is not implemented on this architecture.

 

CONFORMING TO

io_destroy() is Linux specific and should not be used in programs that are intended to be portable.

 

VERSIONS

The asynchronous I/O system calls first appeared in Linux 2.5, August 2002.
