sync()

Synchronize filesystem updates

Synopsis:

#include <unistd.h>

void sync( void );

Since:

BlackBerry 10.0.0

Library:

libc

Use the -l c option to qcc to link against this library. This library is usually included automatically.

Description:

The sync() function queues all the modified block buffers for writing, and returns; it doesn't wait for the actual I/O to take place. Use this function — or fsync() for a single file — to ensure consistency of the entire on-disk filesystem with the contents of the in-memory buffer cache.

Classification:
