zmq_close - close 0MQ socket
int zmq_close (void *socket);
The zmq_close() function shall destroy the socket referenced by the
socket argument. Any outstanding messages physically received from the
network but not yet received by the application with zmq_recv() shall
be discarded. The behaviour for discarding messages sent by the
application with zmq_send() but not yet physically transferred to the
network depends on the value of the ZMQ_LINGER socket option for the
The default setting of ZMQ_LINGER does not discard unsent messages;
this behaviour may cause the application to block when calling
zmq_term(). For details refer to zmq_setsockopt(3) and zmq_term(3).
The zmq_close() function shall return zero if successful. Otherwise it
shall return -1 and set errno to one of the values defined below.
The provided socket was invalid.
