Performs a write operation on an open file with arguments passed in iovec elements.
|fp||Points to a file structure returned by the fp_open kernel service.|
|iov||Points to an array of iovec elements. Each iovec element describes a buffer containing data to be written to the file.|
|iovcnt||Specifies the number of iovec elements in an array pointed to by the iov parameter.|
|ext||Specifies an extension argument required by some device drivers. Its content, form, and use are determined by the individual driver.|
|segflag|| Indicates which part of memory the information designated by the iov
parameter is located in:
|countp||Points to the location where the count of bytes actually written to the file is to be returned.|
The fp_writev kernel service is an internal interface to the function provided by the writev subroutine.
The fp_writev kernel service can be called from the process environment only.
|0||Indicates a successful operation.|
If an error occurs, one of the values from the /usr/include/sys/errno.h file is returned.
The fp_writev kernel service is part of Base Operating System (BOS) Runtime.
