PTHREAD_MUTEXATTR_GETKIND_NP(3) 			   BSD Library Functions Manual 			   PTHREAD_MUTEXATTR_GETKIND_NP(3)

NAME
pthread_mutexattr_getkind_np, pthread_mutexattr_setkind_np -- mutex attribute operations (legacy)
LIBRARY
POSIX Threads Library (libpthread, -lpthread)
SYNOPSIS
#include <pthread_np.h> int pthread_mutexattr_getkind_np(pthread_mutexattr_t attr); int pthread_mutexattr_setkind_np(pthread_mutexattr_t *attr, int kind);
DESCRIPTION
These functions are deprecated and non-portable implementation of the mutex type manipulation. It is recommended to use the pthread_mutexattr_gettype(3) and pthread_mutexattr_settype(3) functions instead.
RETURN VALUES
The pthread_mutexattr_getkind_np() function returns a positive value representing the ``kind'' of the mutex attribute attr if successful; otherwise the value -1 is returned and the global variable errno is set to indicate the error. The pthread_mutexattr_setkind_np() function returns the value 0 if successful; otherwise the value -1 is returned and the global variable errno is set to indicate the error.
ERRORS
The pthread_mutexattr_getkind_np() and pthread_mutexattr_setkind_np() functions will fail if: [EINVAL] The value specified by attr is invalid.
