|TimerID||Specifies the ID of the interval timer being released.|
The reltimerid subroutine returns a 0 if it is successful. If an error occurs, the value -1 is returned and errno is set.
If the reltimerid subroutine fails, a -1 is returned and errno is set with the following error code:
|EINVAL||The timer ID specified by the Timerid parameter is not a valid timer ID.|
