posix::basic_stream_descriptor::close (1 of 2 overloads)

Inherited from posix::basic_descriptor.

Close the descriptor.

void close();

This function is used to close the descriptor. Any asynchronous read or write operations will be cancelled immediately, and will complete with the boost::asio::error::operation_aborted error.



Thrown on failure. Note that, even if the function indicates an error, the underlying descriptor is closed.
