mq_timedreceive — receive a
message from message queue (REALTIME)
POSIX Real-time Library (librt, -lrt)
char *msg_ptr, size_t msg_len,
char *msg_ptr, size_t msg_len,
unsigned *msg_prio, const struct
system call receives oldest of the highest priority message(s) from the
message queue specified by mqdes. If the size of the
buffer in bytes, specified by the msg_len argument, is
less than the mq_msgsize attribute of the message
queue, the system call will fail and return an error. Otherwise, the
selected message will be removed from the queue and copied to the buffer
pointed to by the msg_ptr argument.
If the argument msg_prio
NULL, the priority of the selected message
will be stored in the location referenced by msg_prio.
If the specified message queue is empty and
O_NONBLOCK is not set in the message queue
description associated with mqdes,
will block until a message is enqueued on the message queue or until
mq_receive() is interrupted by a signal. If more
than one thread is waiting to receive a message when a message arrives at an
empty queue and the Priority Scheduling option is supported, then the thread
of highest priority that has been waiting the longest will be selected to
receive the message. Otherwise, it is unspecified which waiting thread
receives the message. If the specified message queue is empty and
O_NONBLOCK is set in the message queue description
associated with mqdes, no message will be removed from
the queue, and
mq_receive() will return an
system call will receive the oldest of the highest priority messages from
the message queue specified by mqdes as described for
mq_receive() system call. However, if
O_NONBLOCK was not specified when the message queue
was opened via the
system call, and no message exists on the queue to satisfy the receive, the
wait for such a message will be terminated when the specified timeout
O_NONBLOCK is set, this system call is
The timeout expires when the absolute time specified by abs_timeout passes, as measured by the clock on which timeouts are based (that is, when the value of that clock equals or exceeds abs_timeout), or if the absolute time specified by abs_timeout has already been passed at the time of the call.
The timeout is based on the
Upon successful completion, the
mq_timedreceive() system calls return the length of
the selected message in bytes and the message is removed from the queue.
Otherwise, no message is removed from the queue, the system call returns a
value of -1, and the global variable errno is set to
indicate the error.
mq_timedreceive() system calls will fail if:
O_NONBLOCKflag is set in the message queue description associated with mqdes, and the specified message queue is empty.
- The mqdes argument is not a valid message queue descriptor open for reading.
- The specified message buffer size, msg_len, is less than the message size attribute of the message queue.
mq_timedreceive() operation was interrupted by a signal.
- The process or thread would have blocked, and the abs_timeout parameter specified a nanoseconds field value less than zero or greater than or equal to 1000 million.
O_NONBLOCKflag was not set when the message queue was opened, but no message arrived on the queue before the specified timeout expired.
mq_timedreceive() system calls conform to
IEEE Std 1003.1-2004 (“POSIX.1”).
Support for POSIX message queues first appeared in FreeBSD 7.0.
