rmvq Utility


Removes a message from a queue.


void rmvq (q, mp)
register queue_t *q;
register mblk_t *mp;


Attention: If the mp parameter does not point to a message that is present on the specified queue, a system panic could result.

The rmvq utility removes the message pointed to by the mp parameter from the message queue pointed to by the q parameter, and then restores the linkage of the messages remaining on the queue.


q Specifies the queue from which to remove the message.
mp Specifies the message to be removed.
