vmo_write - write bytes to the VMO


#include <magenta/syscalls.h>

mx_status_t mx_vmo_write(mx_handle_t handle, const void* data, uint64_t offset,
                         size_t len, size_t* actual);


vmo_write() attempts to write len bytes to a VMO at offset. The number of actual bytes written is returned in actual.

data pointer to a user buffer to write bytes from.

len number of bytes to attempt to write.

actual returns the actual number of bytes written, which may be anywhere from 0 to len. If a write extends beyond the size of the VMO, the actual bytes written will be trimmed to the end of the VMO. If the write starts at or beyond the size of the VMO, MX_ERR_OUT_OF_RANGE will be returned.


mx_vmo_write() returns MX_OK on success. In the event of failure, a negative error value is returned.


MX_ERR_BAD_HANDLE handle is not a valid handle.

MX_ERR_WRONG_TYPE handle is not a VMO handle.

MX_ERR_ACCESS_DENIED handle does not have the MX_RIGHT_WRITE right.

MX_ERR_INVALID_ARGS actual or data is an invalid pointer or NULL.

MX_ERR_NO_MEMORY Failure to allocate system memory to complete write.

MX_ERR_OUT_OF_RANGE offset starts at or beyond the end of the VMO.
