KICONV_CLOSE(9F) Kernel Functions for Drivers KICONV_CLOSE(9F)

kiconv_close - code conversion descriptor deallocation function

#include <sys/errno.h>
#include <sys/sunddi.h>
int kiconv_close(kiconv_t cd);

illumos DDI specific (illumos DDI).

Code conversion descriptor to be deallocated.

The kiconv_close() function deallocates the conversion descriptor cd and all other associated resources allocated by the kiconv_open() function.

Upon successful completion, kiconv_close() returns 0; otherwise, it returns the following errno value to indicate the error:


The code conversion descriptor is invalid.

kiconv_close() can be called from user or interrupt context.

Example 1 Closing the Code Conversion

The following example shows how to close the code conversion descriptor with error checking:

if (kiconv_close(cd) == EBADF) {
         /* Code conversion descriptor is invalid. */
         return (-1);

The following example shows how to close the code conversion descriptor without error checking:

(void) kiconv_close(cd);
