MQ_SETATTR(3) BSD Library Functions Manual MQ_SETATTR(3)
mq_setattr -- set message queue attributes (REALTIME)
POSIX Real-time Library (librt, -lrt)
mq_setattr(mqd_t mqdes, const struct mq_attr *restrict mqstat,
struct mq_attr *restrict omqstat);
The mq_setattr() function sets attributes associated with the open message queue description
referenced by the message queue descriptor specified by mqdes.
The message queue attributes corresponding to the following members defined in the mq_attr
structure will be set to the specified values upon successful completion of mq_setattr():
mq_flags The value of this member is the bitwise-logical OR of zero or more of O_NONBLOCK
and any implementation-defined flags.
The values of the mq_maxmsg, mq_msgsize, and mq_curmsgs members of the mq_attr structure
will be ignored by mq_setattr().
If omqstat is non-NULL, the mq_setattr() function will store, in the location referenced by
omqstat the previous message queue attributes and the current queue status. These values
are the same as would be returned by a call to mq_getattr(3) at that point.
Upon successful completion, the mq_setattr() function returns zero and the attributes of the
message queue will have been changed as specified. Otherwise, the message queue attributes
are unchanged, and the function returns a value of -1 and sets the global variable errno to
indicate the error.
The mq_setattr() function fails if:
[EBADF] The mqdes argument is not a valid message queue descriptor.
This function conforms to the IEEE Std 1003.1-2001 (``POSIX.1'') standard.
