timer_delete(3c)					      timer_delete(3c)

NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

     timer_delete - delete a posix timer

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

     #include <signal.h>
     #include <time.h>

     timer_delete(timer_t *timerid<b>);

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

     timer_delete deletes the posix timer named	by timerid, which was
     previously	created	by a call to timer_create.  If the timer was already
     started, it is disarmed and no signals related to timerid will be
     delivered to the process.

     timer_delete will fail if the following is	true:

     [EINVAL]	    The	timerid	does not name a	valid posix timer.

SEE ALSO    [Toc]    [Back]

     timer_delete(3C), timer_settime(3C), timer_gettime(3C), sigaction(2)

DIAGNOSTICS    [Toc]    [Back]

     Upon successful completion, a value of 0 is returned and the timer
     specified by timerid is deleted.  Otherwise, a value of -1	is returned
     and errno is set to indicate the error.
