I have one application that reads and writes from the serial port.
Sometimes the function read():
"read(fd,buffer,numbytes)" returns before than read bytes reachs numbytes. (Because there are more data in the serial port buffer)
I mean. if numbytes is 32, sometimes read returns 12, and in the next read returns the 20 remaining.
I want to avoid that and I want that "read()" does not return until reads all the numbytes.
I have tried to "open()" with different configurations but all the time "read()" does not wait until reads everything.
Also I have thought about to change the mode from the default one "byte-stream" to " message-nondiscard" but when I try to use the functions:
both functions returns -1 with errno = EINVAL and I do not know if it is bercause I set badly the parameters or is because "Stream is linked under a multiplexing driver" (REALLY I DO NOT WHAT THIS MEANS).
Here I write how I use ioctl:
ioctl(fd,I_GRDOPT,&a); -> //fails -1 and errno = EINVAL
ioctlfd,I_SRDOPT,RMSGN) > //fails -1 and errno = EINVAL.
So if I am using correctly both functions, could somebody explain me the error:
"[EINVAL] fd refers to a Stream that is linked under a multiplexing driver. If a Stream is linked under a multiplexing driver, all ioctl(2s) commands other than I_UNLINK or I_PUNLINK will return [EINVAL]. "?
How can I do that "read()" waits until all the bytes are read as requiered?
