MQ_SETATTR(3)			   BSD Library Functions Manual 		    MQ_SETATTR(3)

NAME
     mq_setattr -- set message queue attributes (REALTIME)

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

SYNOPSIS
     #include <mqueue.h>

     int
     mq_setattr(mqd_t mqdes, const struct mq_attr *restrict mqstat,
	 struct mq_attr *restrict omqstat);

DESCRIPTION
     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.

RETURN VALUES
     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.

ERRORS
     The mq_setattr() function fails if:

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