MQ_SETATTR(3C) Standard C Library Functions MQ_SETATTR(3C)

NAME


mq_setattr - set/get message queue attributes

SYNOPSIS


#include <mqueue.h>

int mq_setattr(mqd_t mqdes, const struct mq_attr *mqstat,
struct mq_attr *omqstat);


DESCRIPTION


The mq_setattr() function is used to set attributes associated with the
open message queue description referenced by the message queue descriptor
specified by mqdes.


The message queue attributes corresponding to the following members
defined in the mq_attr structure are set to the specified values upon
successful completion of mq_setattr():

mq_flags
The value of this member is either 0 or O_NONBLOCK.


The values of mq_maxmsg, mq_msgsize, and mq_curmsgs are ignored by
mq_setattr().


If omqstat is non-NULL, mq_setattr() stores, in the location referenced
by omqstat, the previous message queue attributes and the current queue
status. These values are the same as would be returned by a call to
mq_getattr() at that point.

RETURN VALUES


Upon successful completion, mq_setattr() returns 0 and the attributes of
the message queue will have been changed as specified. Otherwise, the
message queue attributes are unchanged, and the function returns -1 and
sets errno to indicate the error.

ERRORS


The mq_setattr() function will fail if:

EBADF
The mqdes argument is not a valid message queue descriptor.


ENOSYS
The mq_setattr() function is not supported by the system.

NOTES


Solaris 2.6 was the first release to support the Asynchronous Input and
Output option. Prior to this release, this function always returned -1
and set errno to ENOSYS.
