DESCRIPTION

     message queue is available for another process to attach for notifica-
     tion.

RETURN VALUES
     The mq_close() function returns the value 0 if successful; otherwise the
     value -1 is returned and the global variable errno is set to indicate the
     error.

ERRORS

     [EBADF]            The mqdes argument is not a valid message queue
                        descriptor.
