NAME
       inotify_rm_watch - remove an existing watch from an inotify instance

SYNOPSIS
       #include <sys/inotify.h>

DESCRIPTION
       inotify_rm_watch() removes the watch associated with the watch descriptor wd from the ino-
       tify instance associated with the file descriptor fd.

       Removing a watch causes an IN_IGNORED event to be generated  for  this  watch  descriptor.
       (See inotify(7).)

RETURN VALUE

       errno is set appropriately).

ERRORS
       EBADF  fd is not a valid file descriptor.

       EINVAL The watch descriptor wd is not valid; or fd is not an inotify file descriptor.

VERSIONS
