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

NAME
       posix_trace_attr_destroy,  posix_trace_attr_init - destroy and initialize the trace stream
       attributes object (TRACING)

SYNOPSIS
       #include <trace.h>

       int posix_trace_attr_destroy(trace_attr_t *attr);
       int posix_trace_attr_init(trace_attr_t *attr);

DESCRIPTION
       The posix_trace_attr_destroy() function shall  destroy  an  initialized	trace  attributes
       object.	  A    destroyed    attr   attributes	object	 can   be   reinitialized   using
       posix_trace_attr_init(); the results of otherwise referencing the object after it has been
       destroyed are undefined.

       The  posix_trace_attr_init() function shall initialize a trace attributes object attr with
       the default value for all of the individual attributes used by a given implementation. The
       read-only  generation-version  and  clock-resolution  attributes  of the newly initialized
       trace attributes object shall be  set  to  their  appropriate  values  (see  Trace  Stream
       Attributes ).

       Results	are undefined if posix_trace_attr_init() is called specifying an already initial-
       ized attr attributes object.

       Implementations may add extensions to the trace attributes object structure  as	permitted
       in the Base Definitions volume of IEEE Std 1003.1-2001, Chapter 2, Conformance.

       The  resulting  attributes object (possibly modified by setting individual attributes val-
       ues), when used by posix_trace_create(), defines the attributes of the trace  stream  cre-
       ated.  A  single  attributes object can be used in multiple calls to posix_trace_create().
       After one or more trace streams have been created using an attributes object, any function
       affecting that attributes object, including destruction, shall not affect any trace stream
       previously created. An initialized attributes object also serves to receive the attributes
       of an existing trace stream or trace log when calling the posix_trace_get_attr() function.

RETURN VALUE
       Upon  successful completion, these functions shall return a value of zero. Otherwise, they
       shall return the corresponding error number.

ERRORS
       The posix_trace_attr_destroy() function may fail if:

       EINVAL The value of attr is invalid.

       The posix_trace_attr_init() function shall fail if:

       ENOMEM Insufficient memory exists to initialize the trace attributes object.
