int \fBio_fd\fP(int64 fd);
If you want to use io_canread() and io_canwrite() on a descriptor, you
have to use io_wait() on it first, and io_wait() has to know which
descriptors you are interested in. io_fd() informs io_wait() that you
are interested in this fd.
If you know that the descriptor is writable, call io_fd_canwrite()
instead. Most fresh descriptors are writable, e.g. if it came from
pipe(2) or socketpair(2) or accept(2). This will save one syscall.
io_pipe and io_socketpair already call io_fd_canwrite() for you.
Waiting on descriptors only works for sockets, fifos and pipes. It may
also work on devices and TTYs, but that is platform dependent -- you
should not rely on that. It does not work on files.
io_fd returns 1 on success, 0 on error.
