                               const bson_t *selector,
                               const bson_t *opts,
                               bson_t *reply,

Parameters

opts may be NULL or a BSON document with additional command options:

Description

This function removes all documents in the given collection that match selector.

To delete at most one matching document, use mongoc_collection_delete_one.

If you pass a non-NULL reply, it is filled out with the field "deletedCount". If there is a server error then reply contains either a "writeErrors" array with one subdocument or a "writeConcernErrors" array. The reply must be freed with bson_destroy().

Errors

Errors are propagated via the error parameter.

Returns

Returns true if successful. Returns false and sets error if there are invalid arguments or a server or network error.
