untimeout Utility


Cancels a pending timeout request.


int id;


The untimeout utility cancels the specific request made with the timeout utility.

Note: This utility must not be confused with the kernel service of the same name in the libsys.a library. STREAMS modules and drivers inherently use this version, not the libsys.a library version. No special action is required to use this version in the STREAMS environment.


id Specifies the identifier returned from the corresponding timeout request.

Execution Environment

The untimeout utility can be called from either the process or interrupt environment.

Implementation Specifics

This utility is part of STREAMS Kernel Extensions.
