SYNOPSIS

#include <mqueue.h>

int mq_close(mqd_t mqdes);
 

DESCRIPTION

If the process has successfully attached a notification request to the message queue via this mqdes, this attachment shall be removed, and the message queue is available for another process to attach for notification.  

RETURN VALUE

Upon successful completion, the mq_close() function shall return a value of zero; otherwise, the function shall return a value of -1 and set errno to indicate the error.
