int _dbus_read ( int  fd,
DBusString buffer,
int  count 

Thin wrapper around the read() system call that appends the data it reads to the DBusString buffer. It appends up to the given count, and returns the same value and same errno as read(). The only exception is that _dbus_read() handles EINTR for you. _dbus_read() can return ENOMEM, even though regular UNIX read doesn't.

fd the file descriptor to read from
buffer the buffer to append data to
count the amount of data to read
the number of bytes read or -1
