timer_delete — delete a per-process timer
int timer_delete(timer_t timerid);
The timer_delete() function deletes the specified timer, timerid, previously created by the timer_create() function. If the timer is armed when timer_delete() is called, the behavior shall be as if the timer is automatically disarmed before removal. The disposition of pending signals for the deleted timer is unspecified.
If successful, the timer_delete() function shall return a value of zero. Otherwise, the function shall return a value of −1 and set errno to indicate the error.
The timer_delete() function may fail if:
The timer ID specified by timerid is not a valid timer ID.
