inotify_rm_watch


SYNOPSIS
       #include <sys/inotify.h>

       int inotify_rm_watch(int fd, int wd);

DESCRIPTION
       inotify_rm_watch() removes the watch associated with the watch descrip-
       tor wd from the inotify instance associated with  the  file  descriptor
       fd.

       Removing  a  watch  causes an IN_IGNORED event to be generated for this
       watch descriptor.  (See inotify(7).)

RETURN VALUE
       On success, inotify_rm_watch() returns zero, or -1 if an error occurred
       (in which case, errno is set appropriately).

ERRORS
       EBADF  fd is not a valid file descriptor.

       EINVAL The  watch  descriptor  wd is not valid; or fd is not an inotify
              file descriptor.

VERSIONS
       Inotify was merged into the 2.6.13 Linux kernel.

CONFORMING TO
       This system call is Linux-specific.
