fsync - synchronize a file's complete in-core state with
that on disk
int fsync(int fd));
fsync copies all in-core parts of a file to disk.
In some applications, fdatasync is a more efficient alterna-
tive to fsync.
On success, zero is returned. On error, -1 is returned, and
errno is set appropriately.
EBADF fd is not a valid file descriptor open for writing.
fd is bound to a special file which does not support
EIO An error occurred during synchronization.
