Genezzo::RawIO - Genezzo Raw IO
Additional file read and write routines for Genezzo.
sysread and syswrite are wrapped by gen_raw_read and gen_raw_write so raw devices can be used.
- gen_raw_read FILEHANDLE, SCALAR, LENGTH
Performs read identical to sysread, except uses aligned buffer suitable for raw I/O.
- gen_raw_write FILEHANDLE, SCALAR, LENGTH
Performs write identical to syswrite, except uses aligned buffer suitable for raw I/O.
Relies on Perl Inline::C module. Code may gracefully compile to empty stubs on non-raw (non-Linux) platforms, but this has not been thoroughly tested.
