MQ_CLOSE(3) BSD Library Functions Manual MQ_CLOSE(3)
mq_close -- close a message queue (REALTIME)
POSIX Real-time Library (librt, -lrt)
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.
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.
The mq_close() function fails if:
[EBADF] The mqdes argument is not a valid message queue descriptor.
mq(3), mq_open(3), mq_unlink(3)
