The pthread_condattr_getpshared() function shall obtain the value of the process-shared attribute from the attributes object referenced by
attr. The pthread_condattr_setpshared() function shall set the process-shared attribute in an initialized attributes object referenced by
The process-shared attribute is set to PTHREAD_PROCESS_SHARED to permit a condition variable to be operated upon by any thread that has
access to the memory where the condition variable is allocated, even if the condition variable is allocated in memory that is shared by
multiple processes. If the process-shared attribute is PTHREAD_PROCESS_PRIVATE, the condition variable shall only be operated upon by
threads created within the same process as the thread that initialized the condition variable; if threads of differing processes attempt to
operate on such a condition variable, the behavior is undefined. The default value of the attribute is PTHREAD_PROCESS_PRIVATE.
If successful, the pthread_condattr_setpshared() function shall return zero; otherwise, an error number shall be returned to indicate the
If successful, the pthread_condattr_getpshared() function shall return zero and store the value of the process-shared attribute of attr
into the object referenced by the pshared parameter. Otherwise, an error number shall be returned to indicate the error.
The pthread_condattr_getpshared() and pthread_condattr_setpshared() functions may fail if:
EINVAL The value specified by attr is invalid.
The pthread_condattr_setpshared() function may fail if:
EINVAL The new value specified for the attribute is outside the range of legal values for that attribute.
These functions shall not return an error code of [EINTR].
