INOTIFY_RM_WATCH(2)       (2017-09-15)        INOTIFY_RM_WATCH(2)

     NAME
          inotify_rm_watch - remove an existing watch from an inotify
          instance

     SYNOPSIS
          #include <sys/inotify.h>

          int inotify_rm_watch(int fd, int wd);

     DESCRIPTION
          inotify_rm_watch() removes the watch associated with the
          watch descriptor wd from the inotify instance associated
          with the file descriptor fd.

          Removing a watch causes an IN_IGNORED event to be generated
          for this watch descriptor.  (See inotify(7).)

     RETURN VALUE
          On success, inotify_rm_watch() returns zero.  On error, -1
          is returned and errno is set to indicate the cause of the
          error.

     ERRORS
          EBADF
               fd is not a valid file descriptor.

          EINVAL
               The watch descriptor wd is not valid; or fd is not an
               inotify file descriptor.

     VERSIONS
          Inotify was merged into the 2.6.13 Linux kernel.

     CONFORMING TO
          This system call is Linux-specific.
