NAME

sc_wait_for_event - Wait for an event on a smart card reader  

SYNOPSIS

#include <opensc.h>

int sc_wait_for_event(sc_reader_t *readers[], int slots[], size_t numslots,
                      unsigned int event_mask,
                      int *reader, unsigned int *event, int timeout);
                

 

DESCRIPTION

This function blocks until an event occurs on any of the readers/slots specified. The readers and slots fields list the readers and respective slots to be watched. num_slots holds the total number of slots passed. The event_mask parameter specifies the types of events to wait for. This may be a combination of the following flags:

SC_EVENT_CARD_REMOVED

A card was removed from the reader/slot.

SC_EVENT_CARD_INSERTED

A card was inserted into the reader/slot.

On returning, the reader parameter holds the reader which generated an event, and event holds the event flag, as in event_mask.

The timeout parameter may be used to specify the maximum amount of time to wait for an event, in milliseconds. This may be set to -1 to wait forever.  

RETURN VALUE

Returns 0 if successful, 1 if a timeout occurred, or a negative value in case of error.
