NAME         top

       io_uring_prep_sync_file_range - prepare a sync_file_range request

SYNOPSIS         top

       #include <fcntl.h>
       #include <liburing.h>

       void io_uring_prep_sync_file_range(struct io_uring_sqe *sqe,
                                          int fd,
                                          unsigned len,
                                          __u64 offset,
                                          int flags);

DESCRIPTION         top

       The io_uring_prep_sync_file_range(3) function prepares a
       sync_file_range request. The submission queue entry sqe is setup
       to use the file descriptor fd that should get len bytes synced
       started at offset offset and with modifier flags in the flags

       This function prepares an async sync_file_range(2) request. See
       that man page for details on the arguments.

RETURN VALUE         top


ERRORS         top

       The CQE res field will contain the result of the operation. See
       the related man page for details on possible values. Note that
       where synchronous system calls will return -1 on failure and set
       errno to the actual error value, io_uring never uses errno.
       Instead it returns the negated errno directly in the CQE res
