PROLOG         top

       This manual page is part of the POSIX Programmer's Manual.  The Linux
       implementation of this interface may differ (consult the
       corresponding Linux manual page for details of Linux behavior), or
       the interface may not be implemented on Linux.

SYNOPSIS         top

       #include <time.h>

       int timer_delete(timer_t timerid);

DESCRIPTION         top

       The timer_delete() function deletes the specified timer, timerid,
       previously created by the timer_create() function. If the timer is
       armed when timer_delete() is called, the behavior shall be as if the
       timer is automatically disarmed before removal. The disposition of
       pending signals for the deleted timer is unspecified.

RETURN VALUE         top

       If successful, the timer_delete() function shall return a value of
       zero. Otherwise, the function shall return a value of −1 and set
       errno to indicate the error.

ERRORS         top

       The timer_delete() function may fail if:
