This sample application demonstrates using the POSIX eventfd() function to create a file descriptor, which can be used for event notification. The returned file descriptor is used with write/read calls and write/read values are output to the console.
Building and Running
This project outputs to the console. It can be built and executed on QEMU as follows:
west build -b qemu_x86 samples/posix/eventfd
west build -t run
For comparison, to build directly for your host OS if it is POSIX compliant (for ex. Linux):
make -f Makefile.host
The make output file will be located in samples/posix/eventfd/build.
