svc_getreqset Subroutine


Services a Remote Procedure Call (RPC) request.


C Library (libc.a)


#include <sys/types.h>
#include <sys/select.h>
#include <rpc/rpc.h>
void svc_getreqset (rdfds)
fd_set *rdfds;


The svc_getreqset subroutine is only used if a service implementor does not call the svc_run subroutine, but instead implements custom asynchronous event processing. The subroutine is called when the select subroutine has determined that an RPC request has arrived on any RPC sockets. The svc_getreqset subroutine returns when all sockets associated with the value specified by the rdfds parameter have been serviced.


rdfds Specifies the resultant read-file descriptor bit mask.

Implementation Specifics

This subroutine is part of Base Operating System (BOS) Runtime.
