Attempt to read a certain amount of data at the specified offset before returning.
template< typename SyncRandomAccessReadDevice, typename Allocator> std::size_t read_at( SyncRandomAccessReadDevice & d, uint64_t offset, basic_streambuf< Allocator > & b, boost::system::error_code & ec);
This function is used to read a certain number of bytes of data from a random access device at the specified offset. The call will block until one of the following conditions is true:
This operation is implemented in terms of zero or more calls to the device's read_some_at function.
The device from which the data is to be read. The type must support the SyncRandomAccessReadDevice concept.
The offset at which the data will be read.
basic_streambuf object into
which the data will be read.
Set to indicate what error occurred, if any.
The number of bytes transferred.
This overload is equivalent to calling:
boost::asio::read_at( d, 42, b, boost::asio::transfer_all(), ec);
