PTHREAD_CONDATTR_GETCLOCK(P)				     POSIX Programmer's Manual				      PTHREAD_CONDATTR_GETCLOCK(P)

NAME
pthread_condattr_getclock, pthread_condattr_setclock - get and set the clock selection condition variable attribute (ADVANCED REALTIME)
SYNOPSIS
#include <pthread.h> int pthread_condattr_getclock(const pthread_condattr_t *restrict attr, clockid_t *restrict clock_id); int pthread_condattr_setclock(pthread_condattr_t *attr, clockid_t clock_id);
DESCRIPTION
The pthread_condattr_getclock() function shall obtain the value of the clock attribute from the attributes object referenced by attr. The pthread_condattr_setclock() function shall set the clock attribute in an initialized attributes object referenced by attr. If pthread_con- dattr_setclock() is called with a clock_id argument that refers to a CPU-time clock, the call shall fail. The clock attribute is the clock ID of the clock that shall be used to measure the timeout service of pthread_cond_timedwait(). The default value of the clock attribute shall refer to the system clock.
RETURN VALUE
If successful, the pthread_condattr_getclock() function shall return zero and store the value of the clock attribute of attr into the object referenced by the clock_id argument. Otherwise, an error number shall be returned to indicate the error. If successful, the pthread_condattr_setclock() function shall return zero; otherwise, an error number shall be returned to indicate the error.
ERRORS
These functions may fail if: EINVAL The value specified by attr is invalid. The pthread_condattr_setclock() function may fail if: EINVAL The value specified by clock_id does not refer to a known clock, or is a CPU-time clock. These functions shall not return an error code of [EINTR]. The following sections are informative.
EXAMPLES
None.
APPLICATION USAGE
