CANPUT(9F)CANPUT(9F)NAMEcanput - test for room in a message queue
int canput(queue_t *q);
Architecture independent level 1 (DDI/DKI).
Pointer to the message queue.
DESCRIPTIONcanput() searches through the stream (starting at q) until it finds a
queue containing a service routine where the message can be enqueued,
or until it reaches the end of the stream. If found, the queue con‐
taining the service routine is tested to see if there is room for a
message in the queue.
canputnext(q) and bcanputnext(q, pri) should always be used in prefer‐
ence to canput(q→q_next) and bcanput(q→q_next, pri) respectively.
If the message queue is not full.
If the queue is full.
CONTEXTcanput() can be called from user or interrupt context.

Writing Device Drivers
STREAMS Programming Guide
Drivers are responsible for both testing a queue with canput() and
refraining from placing a message on the queue if canput() fails.
