mincore - get information on whether pages are in core
Návod, kniha: Linux Programmer's Manual
int mincore(void *start, size_t length, unsigned
function requests a vector describing which pages of a file
are in core and can be read without disk access. The kernel will supply data
bytes following the start
address. On return, the
kernel will have filled vec
with bytes, of which the least significant
bit indicates if a page is core resident. (The other bits are undefined,
reserved for possible later use.) Of course this is only a snapshot - pages
that are not locked in core can come and go any moment, and the contents of
may be stale already when this call returns.
to return successfully, start
must lie on a page
boundary. It is the caller's responsibility to round up to the nearest page.
parameter need not be a multiple of the page size. The
must be large enough to contain (length+PAGE_SIZE-1) /
PAGE_SIZE bytes. One may obtain the page size from getpagesize
On success, mincore
returns zero. On error, -1 is returned, and
is set appropriately.

- vec points to an invalid address
- start is not a multiple of the page size, or
len has a non-positive value
- address to address + length contained
unmapped memory, or memory not part of a file.
