NAME
mq_notify -- notify process that a message is available (REALTIME)
LIBRARY
POSIX Real-time Library (librt, -lrt)
SYNOPSIS
#include <mqueue.h> int mq_notify(mqd_t mqdes, const struct sigevent *notification);
DESCRIPTION
If the argument notification is not NULL, this function will register the calling process to be notified of message arrival at an empty message queue associated with the specified message queue descriptor, mqdes. The notification specified by the notification argument will be sent to the process when the message queue transitions from empty to non-empty. At any time, only one process may be registered for notification by a mes- sage queue. If the calling process or any other process has already reg- istered for notification of message arrival at the specified message queue, subsequent attempts to register for that message queue fails. If notification is NULL and the process is currently registered for noti- fication by the specified message queue, the existing registration will be removed. When the notification is sent to the registered process, its registration will be removed. The message queue will then be available for registra- tion. If a process has registered for notification of message arrival at a mes- sage queue and some thread is blocked in mq_receive() waiting to receive a message when a message arrives at the queue, the arriving message will satisfy the appropriate mq_receive(). The resulting behavior is as if the message queue remains empty, and no notification will be sent.
RETURN VALUES
The mq_notify() function returns the value 0 if successful; otherwise the value -1 is returned and the global variable errno is set to indicate the error.
ERRORS
The mq_notify() function fails if: [EBADF] The mqdes argument is not a valid message queue descriptor. [EBUSY] A process is already registered for notification by the message queue.
