[in task send right]
The task holding the right.
<dt> <var>name</var> 
[in scalar]
The task's name for the right.
The <strong>mach_port_destroy</strong> function de-allocates all rights
denoted by a name. 
The name becomes immediately available for reuse. 
For most purposes, 
<strong>mach_port_mod_refs</strong> and <strong>mach_port_deallocate</strong> are
If <var>name</var> denotes a port set, then all members of the port set are implicitly
removed from the port set.
If <var>name</var> denotes a receive right that is a member of a port set,
the receive right is 
implicitly removed from the port set.  Remaining messages queued to the port 
are destroyed and extant send and send-once rights turn into dead names.  If 
those send and send-once rights have dead-name requests registered, then
dead-name notifications are generated for them. 
If <var>name</var> denotes a send-once right, then 
the destruction of the send-once right 
produces a send-once notification for the port. 
If <var>name</var> denotes a send-once, send, and/or receive right, and
it has a dead-name 
request registered, then a port-deleted notification is generated
(as opposed to a 
dead-name notification).
This interface is machine word length specific because of the port name
