NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

       strmod_del - Delete STREAMS modules and drivers

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

       #include <sys/stream.h>

       int strmod_del(
               dev_t devno,
               struct streamtab *streamtab,
               struct streamadm *streamadm );

PARAMETERS    [Toc]    [Back]

       The  device  number  (cdevsw  slot) to use when removing a
       STREAMS driver.  This parameter is ignored for modules.  A
       pointer to the streamtab structure that contains the entry
       points.  The actual streamtab structure has  to  be  allocated
 permanently in the driver's data space (as specified
       by System V Release 3.2).   A  pointer  to  the  streamadm
       structure  that contains the administration parameters for
       the STREAMS module or driver.  The actual streamadm structure
 is needed only for the duration of the call.  It does
       not have to be allocated permanently by the  caller.   The
       sa_version   field   must   be  either  OSF_STREAMS_10  or
       OSF_STREAMS_11, and the  sa_flags  field  must  be  either

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

       The  strmod_del()  interface  is used to remove configured
       STREAMS modules and drivers  from  the  kernel.   Specifically,
 it allows STREAMS drivers to remove entry points in
       character device switch tables.  Modules are removed  from
       the STREAMS modules switch.

       When  removing  a driver only, strmod_del() takes a device
       number, which is used to determine the device switch  slot
       for the entry points.

       The  streamtab  parameter  is  a  pointer to a traditional
       (System V Release 3.2) streamtab structure.  The structure
       contains  pointers  to  entry points for the module's read
       and write queue routines.

       The streamadm parameter points to a  streamadm  structure.
       The  streamadm  structure  provides additional information
       that is required by the Tru64 UNIX operating system.

NOTES    [Toc]    [Back]

       The device number can be constructed from the major number
       through   the   makedev()   macro,  which  is  defined  in

RETURN VALUES    [Toc]    [Back]

       Upon successful completion, strmod_del() returns 0.   Otherwise,
  it  returns  one  of  the  following  values: The
       sa_version or sa_flags fields in the  streamadm  structure
       are  not set correctly.  The entry is in use and cannot be
       removed.  The entry to be removed is not found.  The devno
       value is out of range, or the cdevsw entry was not in use.
