io_uring_prep_tee - prepare a tee request

#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);

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.


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 field.
