mmap2: map files or devices into memory

NAME
mmap2 - map files or devices into memory

SYNOPSIS

#include <sys/mman.h> void *mmap2(void *addr, size_t length, int prot, int flags, int fd, off_t pgoffset);

DESCRIPTION

The mmap2() system call operates in exactly the same way as mmap(2), except that the final argument specifies the offset into the file in 4096-byte units (instead of bytes, as is done by mmap(2)). This enables applications that use a 32-bit off_t to map large files (up to 2^44 bytes).

RETURN VALUE

On success, mmap2() returns a pointer to the mapped area. On error -1 is returned and errno is set appropriately.

ERRORS

EFAULT Problem with getting the data from userspace. EINVAL (Various platforms where the page size is not 4096 bytes.) offset * 4096 is not a multiple of the system page size. mmap2() can return any of the same errors as mmap(2).
VERSIONS
mmap2() is available since Linux 2.3.31.
CONFORMING TO
This system call is Linux-specific.

NOTES

Nowadays, the glibc mmap() wrapper function invokes this system call rather than the mmap(2) system call. On ia64, the unit for offset is actually the system page size, rather than 4096 bytes.
