NAME

       xs_term - terminate the context

SYNOPSIS

       int xs_term (void *context);

DESCRIPTION

       The xs_term() function shall terminate the Crossroads context context.

       Context termination is performed in the following steps:

        1. Any blocking operations currently in progress on sockets open within context shall
           return immediately with an error code of ETERM. With the exception of xs_close(), any
           further operations on sockets open within context shall fail with an error code of
           ETERM.

        2. After interrupting all blocking calls, xs_term() shall block until the following
           conditions are satisfied:

           ·   All sockets open within context have been closed with xs_close().

           ·   For each socket within context, all messages sent by the application with
               xs_send() have either been physically transferred to a network peer, or the
               socket’s linger period set with the XS_LINGER socket option has expired.

       For further details regarding socket linger behaviour refer to the XS_LINGER option in
       xs_setsockopt(3).

RETURN VALUE

       The xs_term() function shall return zero if successful. Otherwise it shall return -1 and
       set errno to one of the values defined below.

ERRORS

       EFAULT
           The provided context was invalid.

       EINTR
           Termination was interrupted by a signal. It can be restarted if needed.
