The IxpFcall structure represents a 9P protocol message. The hdr element is common to all Fcall types, and may be used to determine the type and tag of the message. The IxpFcall type is used heavily in server applications, where it both presents a request to handler functions and returns a response to the client.

Each member of the IxpFcall structure represents a certain message type, which can be discerned from the hdr.type field. This value corresponds to one of the IxpFType constants. Types with significant overlap use the same structures, thus TRead and RWrite are both represented by IxpFIO and can be accessed via the io member as well as tread and rwrite respectively.
