MQ_CLOSE(3)                Library Functions Manual                MQ_CLOSE(3)

NAME
     mq_close -- close a message queue (REALTIME)

LIBRARY
     POSIX Real-time Library (librt, -lrt)

SYNOPSIS
     #include <&lt;mqueue.h>&gt;

     int
     mq_close(mqd_t mqdes);

DESCRIPTION
     The mq_close() function will remove the association between the message
     queue descriptor, mqdes, and its message queue.

     If the process has successfully attached a notification request to the
     message queue via this mqdes, this attachment will be removed, and the
     message queue is available for another process to attach for
     notification.

RETURN VALUES
     The mq_close() function returns the value 0 if successful; otherwise the
     value -1 is returned and the global variable errno is set to indicate the
     error.

ERRORS
     The mq_close() function fails if:

     [EBADF]            The mqdes argument is not a valid message queue
                        descriptor.
