//! IoVec extensions for Unix platforms.
//!
//! These functions provide conversions to unix specific representations of the
//! vectored data.
//!
//! # Examples
//!
//! ```
//! use iovec::IoVec;
//! use iovec::unix;
//!
//! let a = b"hello".to_vec();
//! let b = b"world".to_vec();
//!
//! let bufs: &[&IoVec] = &[(&a[..]).into(), (&b[..]).into()];
//! let os_bufs = unix::as_os_slice(&bufs[..]);
//!
//! // Use the `os_bufs` slice with `writev`.
//! ```
use IoVec;
use libc;
use std::mem;
