posix_spawn_file_actions_destroy, posix_spawn_file_actions_init - destroy and initialize spawn file actions object (ADVANCED REALTIME) SYNOPSIS
#include <spawn.h> int posix_spawn_file_actions_destroy(posix_spawn_file_actions_t * file_actions); int posix_spawn_file_actions_init(posix_spawn_file_actions_t * file_actions); DESCRIPTION
The posix_spawn_file_actions_destroy() function shall destroy the object referenced by file_actions; the object becomes, in effect, unini- tialized. An implementation may cause posix_spawn_file_actions_destroy() to set the object referenced by file_actions to an invalid value. A destroyed spawn file actions object can be reinitialized using posix_spawn_file_actions_init(); the results of otherwise referencing the object after it has been destroyed are undefined. The posix_spawn_file_actions_init() function shall initialize the object referenced by file_actions to contain no file actions for posix_spawn() or posix_spawnp() to perform. A spawn file actions object is as defined in posix_spawn_file_actions_addclose() . The effect of initializing an already initialized spawn file actions object is undefined. RETURN VALUE
Upon successful completion, these functions shall return zero; otherwise, an error number shall be returned to indicate the error. ERRORS
The posix_spawn_file_actions_init() function shall fail if: ENOMEM Insufficient memory exists to initialize the spawn file actions object. The posix_spawn_file_actions_destroy() function may fail if: EINVAL The value specified by file_actions is invalid. The following sections are informative. EXAMPLES
These functions are part of the Spawn option and need not be provided on all implementations. RATIONALE
