NAME

       inotify_rm_watch - remove an existing watch from an inotify instance

SYNOPSIS

       #include <sys/inotify.h>

       int inotify_rm_watch(int fd, uint32_t wd);

DESCRIPTION

       inotify_rm_watch()   removes   the  watch  associated  with  the  watch
       descriptor wd from  the  inotify  instance  associated  with  the  file
       descriptor fd.

       Removing  a  watch  causes an IN_IGNORED event to be generated for this
       watch descriptor.  (See inotify(7).)

RETURN VALUE

       On success, inotify_rm_watch() returns zero, or -1 if an error occurred
       (in which case, errno is set appropriately).

ERRORS

       EBADF  fd is not a valid file descriptor.

       EINVAL The  watch  descriptor  wd is not valid; or fd is not an inotify
              file descriptor.

VERSIONS

       Inotify was merged into the 2.6.13 Linux kernel.
