NAME

rfio_lockf - provide record locking on files

SYNOPSIS

#include <sys/types.h> #include "rfio_api.h" int rfio_lockf (int sd, int op, long siz); Under Linux, for large files: #define _LARGEFILE64_SOURCE #include <sys/types.h> #include "rfio_api.h" int rfio_lockf64 (int sd, int op, off64_t siz); For large files, under other systems: #include <sys/types.h> #include "rfio_api.h" int rfio_lockf64 (int sd, int op, off64_t siz);

DESCRIPTION

rfio_lockf restricts access to regions of files to the calling process. sd is the file descriptor returned by a previous rfio_open. op specifies the action to be taken: F_ULOCK unlock a region. F_LOCK lock a region. F_TLOCK test and lock a region. F_TEST test a region for other locks. siz gives the size of the region to be locked, starting at the current file offset. rfio_lockf64 must be used for large files and uses an off64_t instead of a long to specify the size of the region to be locked.

RETURN VALUE

This routine returns 0 if the operation was successful or -1 if the operation failed. In the latter case, serrno is set appropriately.

ERRORS

EBADF sd is not a valid descriptor. EACCES The file region is locked and F_TEST or F_TLOCK was specified. EINVAL incorrect value for op or siz. SENOSHOST Host unknown. SENOSSERV Service unknown. SETIMEDOUT Timed out. SECONNDROP Connection closed by remote end. SECOMERR Communication error.
