NAME
       inotify_rm_watch - remove an existing watch from an inotify instance

SYNOPSIS
       #include <sys/inotify.h>

       int inotify_rm_watch(int fd, uint32_t wd);

DESCRIPTION
       inotify_rm_watch()  removes the watch associated with the watch descriptor wd from the inotify instance associ-
       ated 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

       ately).

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
