NAME

	CMD_WRITE/ETD_WRITE -- write sectors of data to a disk.

FUNCTION

	These commands transfer data from a supplied buffer to the track
buffer. If the track that contains this sector is already in the track
buffer, no disk activity is initiated. If the desired sector is not in
the buffer, the track containing that sector is automatically read in.
If the data in the current track buffer has been modified, it is
written out to the disk before the new track is read in for
modification. ETD_WRITE will write the sector label area if
iotd_SecLabel is non-NULL.
IO REQUEST INPUT
io_Device preset by the call to OpenDevice()
io_Unit preset by the call to OpenDevice()
io_Command CMD_WRITE or ETD_WRITE
io_Flags 0 or IOF_QUICK
io_Data pointer to the buffer where the data should be put
io_Length number of bytes to write, must be a multiple of
TD_SECTOR.
io_Offset byte offset from the start of the disk describing
where to write data to, must be a multiple of
TD_SECTOR.
iotd_Count (ETD_WRITE only) maximum allowable change counter
value.
iotd_SecLabel (ETD_WRITE only) NULL or sector label buffer pointer.
If provided, the buffer must be a multiple of
TD_LABELSIZE.
IO REQUEST RESULT
io_Error - 0 for success, or an error code as defined in
<devices/trackdisk.h>

NOTES

	Under versions of Kickstart earlier than V36, the io_Data had to
point to a buffer in chip memory. This restriction is no longer
present as of Kickstart V36 and beyond.
