PROLOG
This manual page is part of the POSIX Programmer's Manual. The Linux implementation of this interface may differ (consult the correspond- ing Linux manual page for details of Linux behavior), or the interface may not be implemented on Linux. NAME
pthread_attr_getscope, pthread_attr_setscope - get and set the contentionscope attribute (REALTIME THREADS) SYNOPSIS
#include <pthread.h> int pthread_attr_getscope(const pthread_attr_t *restrict attr, int *restrict contentionscope); int pthread_attr_setscope(pthread_attr_t *attr, int contentionscope); DESCRIPTION
The pthread_attr_getscope() and pthread_attr_setscope() functions, respectively, shall get and set the contentionscope attribute in the attr object. The contentionscope attribute may have the values PTHREAD_SCOPE_SYSTEM, signifying system scheduling contention scope, or PTHREAD_SCOPE_PROCESS, signifying process scheduling contention scope. The symbols PTHREAD_SCOPE_SYSTEM and PTHREAD_SCOPE_PROCESS are defined in the <pthread.h> header. RETURN VALUE
If successful, the pthread_attr_getscope() and pthread_attr_setscope() functions shall return zero; otherwise, an error number shall be returned to indicate the error. ERRORS
The pthread_attr_setscope() function may fail if: EINVAL The value of contentionscope is not valid. ENOTSUP An attempt was made to set the attribute to an unsupported value. These functions shall not return an error code of [EINTR]. The following sections are informative. EXAMPLES
None. APPLICATION USAGE
After these attributes have been set, a thread can be created with the specified attributes using pthread_create(). Using these routines does not affect the current running thread. RATIONALE
None. FUTURE DIRECTIONS
None. SEE ALSO

NAME
pthread_attr_getscope, pthread_attr_setscope - get or set contentionscope attribute SYNOPSIS
cc -mt [ flag... ] file... -lpthread [ library... ] #include <pthread.h> int pthread_attr_getscope(const pthread_attr_t *restrict attr, int *restrict contentionscope); int pthread_attr_setscope(pthread_attr_t *attr, int contentionscope); The pthread_attr_setscope() and pthread_attr_getscope() functions are used to set and get the contentionscope attribute in the attr object. The contentionscope attribute can have the value PTHREAD_SCOPE_SYSTEM, signifying system scheduling contention scope, or PTHREAD_SCOPE_PROCESS, signifying process scheduling contention scope. The symbols PTHREAD_SCOPE_SYSTEM and PTHREAD_SCOPE_PROCESS are defined by the header <pthread.h>. If successful, the pthread_attr_setscope() and pthread_attr_getscope() functions return 0. Otherwise, an error number is returned to indi- cate the error. The pthread_attr_setscope(), or pthread_attr_getscope(), function may fail if: EINVAL attr or contentionscope is invalid. USAGE
After these attributes have been set, a thread can be created with the specified attributes using pthread_create(). Using these routines does not affect the current running thread.
