sem_unlink - remove a named semaphore
int sem_unlink(const char *name);
Link with -pthread.
sem_unlink() removes the named semaphore referred to by name. The semaphore name is removed immediately. The semaphore is destroyed once all other processes that have the semaphore open close it.
On success sem_unlink() returns 0; on error, -1 is returned, with errno set to indicate the error.
For an explanation of the terms used in this section, see attributes(7).
