pmem2_map_delete - Man Page

deletes a mapping


#include <libpmem2.h>

int pmem2_map_delete(struct pmem2_map **map_ptr);


The pmem2_map_delete() function deletes the mapping described by the struct pmem2_map object.

If pmem2_map_delete() succeeds in deleting the mapping, it releases the struct pmem2_map object describing it and writes a NULL value to map_ptr. If the function fails, the map_ptr variable and the map object itself are left unmodified and appropriate error value is returned. For a list of possible return values please see Return Value.

The pmem2_map_delete() function will not unmap mapping provided by the user by pmem2_map_from_existing() function. In such case it will only free struct pmem2_map object.

Return Value

The pmem2_map_delete() function returns 0 on success or a negative error code on failure.


The pmem2_map_delete() can fail with the following errors:

On systems other than Windows it can also return -EINVAL from the underlying munmap(2) function.
