munmap — remove a
Standard C Library (libc, -lc)
system call deletes the mappings and guards for the specified address range,
and causes further references to addresses within the range to generate
invalid memory references.
munmap() function returns the
value 0 if successful; otherwise the value -1 is returned and
the global variable errno is set to indicate the
munmap() system call will fail if:
- The addr argument was not page aligned, the len argument was zero or negative, or some part of the region being unmapped is outside the valid address range for a process.
