||This extension provides interface to the libeio library written by Marc Lehmann
<libeio at schmorp dot de>(see http://software.schmorp.de/pkg/libeio.html).
Libeio is a an asynchronous I/O library. Features basically include
asynchronous versions of POSIX API(read, write, open, close, stat, unlink,
fdatasync, mknod, readdir etc.); sendfile (native on Solaris, Linux, HP-UX,
FreeBSD); readahead. libeio itself emulates the system calls, if they are not
available on specific(UNIX-like) platform.
Currently this extension supports GNU/Linux and BSD platforms only. But you can
try it on any UNIX OS.
