#include <libssh2.h>
libssh2_session_disconnect_ex(LIBSSH2_SESSION *session, int reason,
                              const char *description,
                              const char *lang);
libssh2_session_disconnect(LIBSSH2_SESSION *session,
                           const char *description);

session - Session instance as returned by libssh2_session_init_ex(3)

reason - One of the Disconnect Reason constants.

description - Human readable reason for disconnection.

lang - Localization string describing the language/encoding of the description provided.

Send a disconnect message to the remote host associated with session, along with a reason symbol and a verbose description.

As a convenience, the macro libssh2_session_disconnect(3) is provided. It calls libssh2_session_disconnect_ex(3) with reason set to SSH_DISCONNECT_BY_APPLICATION and lang set to an empty string.

Return 0 on success or negative on failure. It returns LIBSSH2_ERROR_EAGAIN when it would otherwise block. While LIBSSH2_ERROR_EAGAIN is a negative number, it is not really a failure per se.
