NAME

       libssh2_channel_close - close a channel

SYNOPSIS

       #include <libssh2.h>

       int libssh2_channel_close(LIBSSH2_CHANNEL *channel);

DESCRIPTION

       channel - active channel stream to set closed status on.

       Close  an  active  data channel. In practice this means sending an SSH_MSG_CLOSE packet to
       the remote host which serves as instruction that no further data will be sent to  it.  The
       remote  host may still send data back until it sends its own close message in response. To
       wait for the remote end to  close  its  connection  as  well,  follow  this  command  with
       libssh2_channel_wait_closed(3)

RETURN VALUE

       Return 0 on success or negative on failure.  It returns LIBSSH2_ERROR_EAGAIN when it would
       otherwise block. While LIBSSH2_ERROR_EAGAIN is  a  negative  number,  it  isn't  really  a
       failure per se.

ERRORS

       LIBSSH2_ERROR_SOCKET_SEND - Unable to send data on socket.
