You can use several procedures, as well as the data link control (DLC) reference information, to manage DLC.
The following sections list available DLC reference information:
For more information on DLC reference items, see AIX Version 4.3 Technical Reference.
|dlcclose||Closes a generic data link control (GDLC) channel.|
|dlcconfig||Issues specific commands to GDLC.|
|dlcioctl||Issues specific commands to GDLC.|
|dlcmpx||Decodes the device handler's special file name appended to the opened call.|
|dlcopen||Opens a GDLC channel.|
|dlcread||Reads receive data from GDLC.|
|dlcselect||Selects for asynchronous criteria from GDLC, such as receive data completion and exception conditions.|
|dlcwrite||Writes transmit data to GDLC.|
|fp_close||Allows kernel to close the GDLC device manager using a file pointer.|
|fp_ioctl||Transfers special commands from the kernel to GDLC.|
|fp_open||Allows kernel to open the GDLC device manager by its device name.|
|fp_write||Allows kernel data to be sent using a file pointer.|
