MQ_UNLINK(3)			   BSD Library Functions Manual 		     MQ_UNLINK(3)

NAME
     mq_unlink -- remove a message queue (REALTIME)

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

SYNOPSIS
     #include <mqueue.h>

     int
     mq_unlink(const char *name);

DESCRIPTION
     The mq_unlink() function removes the message queue named by the pathname name.  After a suc-
     cessful call to mq_unlink() with name, a call to mq_open(3) with name fails if the flag
     O_CREAT is not set in flags.  If one or more processes have the message queue open when
     mq_unlink() is called, destruction of the message queue will be postponed until all refer-
     ences to the message queue have been closed.

     Calls to mq_open(3) to recreate the message queue may fail until the message queue is actu-
     ally removed.  However, the mq_unlink() call need not block until all references have been
     closed; it may return immediately.

RETURN VALUES
     Upon successful completion, the function returns a value of zero.	Otherwise, the named mes-
     sage queue will be unchanged by this function call, and the function returns a value of -1
     and sets the global variable errno to indicate the error.

ERRORS
     The mq_unlink() function fails if:

     [EACCES]		Permission is denied to unlink the named message queue.

     [ENAMETOOLONG]	The length of the name argument exceeds {PATH_MAX} or a pathname compo-
			nent is longer than {NAME_MAX}.

     [ENOENT]		The named message queue does not exist.
