Mutex attributes object to be destroyed.
This routine destroys a mutex attributes object--that is,
the object becomes uninitialized. Call this routine when
your program no longer needs the specified mutex
After this routine is called, DECthreads may reclaim the
storage used by the mutex attributes object. Mutexes that
were created using this attributes object are not affected
by the destruction of the mutex attributes object.
The results of calling this routine are unpredictable, if
the attributes object specified in the attr argument does
If an error condition occurs, this routine returns an
integer value indicating the type of error. Possible
