NAME

getfsstat - Gets list of all mounted file systems  

SYNOPSIS

#include <sys/types.h> #include <sys/mount.h>

getfsstat(        struct statfs buf[],
       long bufsize,
       int flags );
 

PARAMETERS

An array of statfs structures. Specifies the size in bytes of the buf parameter. Specifies one of the following flags: Wait for an update from each file system before returning information. Information is returned without requesting an update from each file system. Thus, some of the information will be out of date, but the getfsstat() function will not block waiting for information from a file system that is unable to respond.  

DESCRIPTION

The getfsstat() function returns information about all mounted file systems. Upon successful completion, the buffer pointed to by the buf parameter is filled with an array of statfs structures, one for each mounted file system up to the size specified by the bufsize parameter.

If the buf parameter is given as 0 (zero), the getfsstat() function returns just the number of mounted file systems.  

RETURN VALUE

Upon successful completion, the number of statfs structures is returned. Otherwise, -1 is returned and errno is set to indicate the error.  

ERRORS

If the getfsstat() function fails, errno may be set to one of the following values: The buf parameter points to an invalid address. An I/O error occurred while reading from or writing to the file system.
