Default handler for _IO_STAT messages


#include <sys/iofunc.h>

int iofunc_stat_default( resmgr_context_t *ctp,
                         io_stat_t *msg,

A pointer to a resmgr_context_t structure that the resource-manager library uses to pass context information between functions.
A pointer to the io_stat_t structure that contains the message that the resource manager received; see below.
A pointer to the iofunc_ocb_t structure for the Open Control Block that was created when the client opened the resource.



Use the -l c option to qcc to link against this library. This library is usually included automatically.


The iofunc_stat_default() function implements POSIX semantics for the client's stat() or fstat() call, which is received as an _IO_STAT message by the resource manager.

You can place this function directly into the io_funcs table passed to resmgr_attach(), at the stat position, or you can call iofunc_func_init() to initialize all of the functions to their default values.

The iofunc_stat_default() function calls:

io_stat_t structure

The io_stat_t structure holds the _IO_STAT message received by the resource manager:

struct _io_stat {
    uint16_t                    type;
    uint16_t                    combine_len;
    uint32_t                    zero;

typedef union {
    struct _io_stat             i;
    struct stat                 o;
} io_stat_t;

The I/O message structures are unions of an input message (coming to the resource manager) and an output or reply message (going back to the client).

The i member is a structure of type _io_stat that contains the following members:

If the message is a combine message, _IO_COMBINE_FLAG is set in this member. For more information, see Combine Messages chapter of Writing a Resource Manager.

The o member is a structure of type stat; for more information, see stat().


Successful completion.
