remctl_close — Close a remctl connection and free the client object


#include <remctl.h>

void remctl_close(struct remctl *r);


remctl_close() cleanly closes any connection to a remote server created via remctl_open() for the given client object and then frees the object created by remctl_new(). It should be called when the caller is finished with a remctl client object to avoid resource leaks. Following the call to remctl_close(), the r pointer to the remctl client object is no longer valid.

remctl_close() is always successful, even if it is unable to send a clean protocol quit command to the remote server.


This interface has been provided by the remctl client library since its initial release in version 2.0.
