NAME

fdatasync - synchronize the data of a file (REALTIME)  

SYNOPSIS

#include <unistd.h>

int fdatasync(int fildes);
 

DESCRIPTION

The fdatasync() function shall force all currently queued I/O operations associated with the file indicated by file descriptor fildes to the synchronized I/O completion state.

The functionality shall be equivalent to fsync() with the symbol _POSIX_SYNCHRONIZED_IO defined, with the exception that all I/O operations shall be completed as defined for synchronized I/O data integrity completion.  

RETURN VALUE

If successful, the fdatasync() function shall return the value 0; otherwise, the function shall return the value -1 and set errno to indicate the error. If the fdatasync() function fails, outstanding I/O operations are not guaranteed to have been completed.  

ERRORS

The fdatasync() function shall fail if:

EBADF
The fildes argument is not a valid file descriptor open for writing.
EINVAL
This implementation does not support synchronized I/O for this file.

In the event that any of the queued I/O operations fail, fdatasync() shall return the error conditions defined for read() and write().
