Async I/O link prob

I'm trying to create a program that uses aio functions.

I am using RedHat 9 with the latest glibc updates.

When I compile & link the program I get an error from the linker that aio_read as well as all the other aio_xx routines are "undefined references"

I can't figure out what other library I need to link in. Help!

Thanks, vladkrack, there's no libaio on the Redhat 9 dist.

But I found them! They are in librt just like GNU docs say the should be

for anyone else who runs into this: to link with librt add -lrt on the gcc command line.
