NAME

     timer_delete -- delete a per-process timer (REALTIME)

LIBRARY

     POSIX Real-time Library (librt, -lrt)

SYNOPSIS

     #include <time.h>

     int
     timer_delete(timer_t timerid);

DESCRIPTION

     The timer_delete() system call deletes the specified timer, timerid,
     previously created by the timer_create(2) system call.  If the timer is
     armed when timer_delete() is called, the behavior is as if the timer is
     automatically disarmed before removal.  Pending signals for the deleted
     timer are cleared.

RETURN VALUES

     Upon successful completion, the value 0 is returned; otherwise the
     value -1 is returned and the global variable errno is set to indicate the
     error.

ERRORS

     The timer_delete() system call will fail if:

     [EINVAL]           The timer ID specified by timerid is not a valid timer
                        ID.

SEE ALSO

     timer_create(2)

STANDARDS

     The timer_delete() system call conforms to IEEE Std 1003.1-2004
     (``POSIX.1'')

HISTORY

     Support for POSIX per-process timer first appeared in FreeBSD 7.0.
