NAME         top

       io_uring_prep_tee - prepare a tee request

SYNOPSIS         top

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

       void io_uring_prep_tee(struct io_uring_sqe *sqe,
                              int fd_in,
                              int fd_out,
                              unsigned int nbytes,
                              unsigned int splice_flags);

DESCRIPTION         top

       The io_uring_prep_tee(3) function prepares a tee request. The
       submission queue entry sqe is setup to use as input the file
       descriptor fd_in and as output the file descriptor fd_out
       duplicating nbytes bytes worth of data.  splice_flags are
       modifier flags for the operation. See tee(2) for the generic
       splice flags.

       If the fd_out descriptor, IOSQE_FIXED_FILE can be set in the SQE
       to indicate that. For the input file, the io_uring specific
       SPLICE_F_FD_IN_FIXED can be set and fd_in given as a registered
       file descriptor offset.

       This function prepares an async tee(2) request. See that man page
       for details.

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
