CEC_DQEVENT - Dequeue a CEC event
.. cpp:function:: int ioctl( int fd, int request, struct cec_event *argp )
File descriptor returned by :ref:`open() <cec-func-open>`.
.. note:: This documents the proposed CEC API. This API is not yet finalized
and is currently only available as a staging kernel module.
CEC devices can send asynchronous events. These can be retrieved by
calling :ref:`ioctl CEC_DQEVENT <CEC_DQEVENT>`. If the file descriptor is in
non-blocking mode and no event is pending, then it will return -1 and
set errno to the ``EAGAIN`` error code.
The internal event queues are per-filehandle and per-event type. If
there is no more room in a queue then the last event is overwritten with
the new one. This means that intermediate results can be thrown away but
that the latest event is always available. This also means that is it
possible to read two successive events that have the same value (e.g.
the same state). In that case the intermediate state changes were lost but
it is guaranteed that the state did change in between the two events.

- .. row 1
- __u16
- ``phys_addr``
- The current physical address. This is ``CEC_PHYS_ADDR_INVALID`` if no
valid physical address is set.
- .. row 2
- __u16
- ``log_addr_mask``
- The current set of claimed logical addresses. This is 0 if no logical
addresses are claimed or if ``phys_addr`` is ``CEC_PHYS_ADDR_INVALID``.
If bit 15 is set (``1 << CEC_LOG_ADDR_UNREGISTERED``) then this device
has the unregistered logical address. In that case all other bits are 0.

- __u32
- ``lost_msgs``
- Set to the number of lost messages since the filehandle was opened
or since the last time this event was dequeued for this
filehandle. The messages lost are the oldest messages. So when a
new message arrives and there is no more room, then the oldest
message is discarded to make room for the new one. The internal
size of the message queue guarantees that all messages received in
the last two seconds will be stored. Since messages should be
replied to within a second according to the CEC specification,
this is more than enough.

The timestamp has been taken from the ``CLOCK_MONOTONIC`` clock. To access
the same clock from userspace use :c:func:`clock_gettime(2)`.

- The new adapter state as sent by the :ref:`CEC_EVENT_STATE_CHANGE <CEC-EVENT-STATE-CHANGE>`

- 1
- Generated when the CEC Adapter's state changes. When open() is
called an initial event will be generated for that filehandle with
the CEC Adapter's state at that time.
- 2
- Generated if one or more CEC messages were lost because the
application didn't dequeue CEC messages fast enough.
.. _cec-event-flags:
.. flat-table:: CEC Event Flags
:header-rows: 0
:stub-columns: 0
:widths: 3 1 8
- 1
- Set for the initial events that are generated when the device is
opened. See the table above for which events do this. This allows
applications to learn the initial state of the CEC adapter at
open() time.
Return Value
On success 0 is returned, on error -1 and the ``errno`` variable is set
appropriately. The generic error codes are described at the
:ref:`Generic Error Codes <gen-errors>` chapter.
