pmemset_source_pread_mcsafe(), pmemset_source_pwrite_mcsafe() - read source contents or write to the source in a safe manner
#include <libpmemset.h> struct pmemset_source; int pmemset_source_pread_mcsafe(struct pmemset_source *src, void *buf, size_t size, size_t offset); int pmemset_source_pwrite_mcsafe(struct pmemset_source *src, void *buf, size_t size, size_t offset);
The pmemset_source_pread_mcsafe() function reads size bytes from the source src starting at offset offset into the buffer buf. The pmemset_source_pwrite_mcsafe() function writes size bytes from the buffer buf to the source src starting at the offset offset.
Safe manner refers to the capability to handle errors resulting from bad blocks, preventing them from terminating an application and returning those errors to the user. For details, see corresponding libpmem2(7) functions pmem2_source_pread_mcsafe(3) and pmem2_source_pwrite_mcsafe(3).
Source src can be created with pmemset_source_from_file(3), pmemset_xsource_from_file(3), pmemset_source_from_pmem2(3) and pmemset_source_from_temporary(3).
The pmemset_source_pread_mcsafe() and pmemset_source_pwrite_mcsafe() functions return 0 on success or a negative error code on failure.
The pmemset_source_pread_mcsafe() and pmemset_source_pwrite_mcsafe() can fail with the following errors:
PMEMSET_E_IO_FAIL - a physical I/O error occurred during the read/write operation, a possible bad block encountered.
PMEMSET_E_LENGTH_OUT_OF_RANGE - read/write operation size size from offset offset goes beyond the file length. Sources created with pmemset_source_from_temporary(3) have initial size 0 and are prone to this error.
Those operations can also return all errors from the underlying pmem2_source_pread_mcsafe(3) and pmem2_source_pwrite_mcsafe(3) functions.
