AIO_CANCEL(3P)		   POSIX Programmer's Manual		AIO_CANCEL(3P)

       This  manual  page is part of the POSIX Programmer's Manual.  The Linux
       implementation of this interface may differ (consult the	 corresponding
       Linux  manual page for details of Linux behavior), or the interface may
       not be implemented on Linux.

       aio_cancel - cancel an asynchronous I/O request (REALTIME)

       #include <aio.h>

       int aio_cancel(int fildes, struct aiocb *aiocbp);

       The aio_cancel() function shall attempt to cancel one or more asynchro‐
       nous I/O requests currently outstanding against file descriptor fildes.
       The aiocbp argument points to the asynchronous I/O control block for  a
       particular  request  to	be  canceled. If aiocbp is NULL, then all out‐
       standing cancelable asynchronous I/O requests against fildes  shall  be

       Normal asynchronous notification shall occur for asynchronous I/O oper‐
       ations that are successfully canceled. If there are requests that  can‐
       not  be canceled, then the normal asynchronous completion process shall
       take place for those requests when they are completed.

       For requested operations that are successfully canceled, the associated
       error status shall be set to [ECANCELED] and the return status shall be
       -1. For requested operations that are not  successfully	canceled,  the
       aiocbp shall not be modified by aio_cancel().

       If  aiocbp  is not NULL, then if fildes does not have the same value as
       the file descriptor with which the asynchronous	operation  was	initi‐
       ated, unspecified results occur.

       Which operations are cancelable is implementation-defined.

       The  aio_cancel()  function  shall return the value AIO_CANCELED to the
       calling process if the requested operation(s) were canceled. The	 value
       AIO_NOTCANCELED	shall  be  returned  if	 at least one of the requested
       operation(s) cannot be canceled because it  is  in  progress.  In  this
       case, the state of the other operations, if any, referenced in the call
       to aio_cancel() is not indicated by the return value  of	 aio_cancel().
       The application may determine the state of affairs for these operations
       by using aio_error(). The value AIO_ALLDONE is returned if all  of  the
       operations have already completed. Otherwise, the function shall return
       -1 and set errno to indicate the error.

       The aio_cancel() function shall fail if:

       EBADF  The fildes argument is not a valid file descriptor.

       The following sections are informative.


       The aio_cancel() function is part of the Asynchronous Input and	Output
       option and need not be available on all implementations.
