timer_delete(timer_t timerid);

The timer_delete() functions deletes the timer specified in the timerid argument. The timerid argument must point to valid timer id, created by timer_create(2). If the deletion is successful, the timer is disarmed and deleted. Pending notification events (signals) may or may not be delivered.

If successful, the timer_delete() functions returns 0. Otherwise, it returns -1, and sets errno to indicate error.

The timer_delete() function will fail if:

[]
The argument timerid is not a valid timer id.
