dio_fcntl

(PHP 4 >= 4.2.0)

dio_fcntl -- Performs a c library fcntl on fd

Description

mixed dio_fcntl ( resource fd, int cmd [, mixed arg])

The dio_fcntl() function performs the operation specified by cmd on the file descriptor fd. Some commands require additional arguments args to be supplied.

arg is an associative array, when cmd is F_SETLK or F_SETLLW, with the following keys:

  • "start" - offset where lock begins

  • "length" - size of locked area. zero means to end of file

  • "wenth" - Where l_start is relative to: can be SEEK_SET, SEEK_END and SEEK_CUR

  • "type" - type of lock: can be F_RDLCK (read lock), F_WRLCK (write lock) or F_UNLCK (unlock)

cmd can be one of the following operations:

  • F_SETLK - Lock is set or cleared. If the lock is held by someone else dio_fcntl() returns -1.

  • F_SETLKW - like F_SETLK, but in case the lock is held by someone else, dio_fcntl() waits until the lock is released.

  • F_GETLK - dio_fcntl() returns an associative array (as described above) if someone else prevents lock. If there is no obstruction key "type" will set to F_UNLCK.

  • F_DUPFD - finds the lowest numbered available file descriptor greater or equal than arg and returns them.

  • F_SETFL - Sets the file descriptors flags to the value specified by arg, which can be O_APPEND,O_NONBLOCK or O_ASYNC. To use O_ASYNC you will need to use the PCNTL extension.
