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

NAME
       pthread_attr_getscope,  pthread_attr_setscope  - get and set the contentionscope attribute
       (REALTIME THREADS)

SYNOPSIS
       #include <pthread.h>

       int pthread_attr_getscope(const pthread_attr_t *restrict attr,
	      int *restrict contentionscope);
       int pthread_attr_setscope(pthread_attr_t *attr, int contentionscope);

DESCRIPTION
       The pthread_attr_getscope() and pthread_attr_setscope() functions, respectively, shall get
       and set the contentionscope attribute in the attr object.

       The  contentionscope attribute may have the values PTHREAD_SCOPE_SYSTEM, signifying system
       scheduling contention scope, or PTHREAD_SCOPE_PROCESS, signifying process scheduling  con-
       tention	scope.	The symbols PTHREAD_SCOPE_SYSTEM and PTHREAD_SCOPE_PROCESS are defined in
       the <pthread.h> header.

RETURN VALUE
       If successful, the pthread_attr_getscope()  and	pthread_attr_setscope()  functions  shall
       return zero; otherwise, an error number shall be returned to indicate the error.

ERRORS
       The pthread_attr_setscope() function may fail if:

       EINVAL The value of contentionscope is not valid.

       ENOTSUP
	      An attempt was made to set the attribute to an unsupported value.

       These functions shall not return an error code of [EINTR].

       The following sections are informative.

EXAMPLES
       None.

APPLICATION USAGE
       After  these  attributes  have  been  set,  a  thread  can  be  created with the specified
       attributes using pthread_create(). Using these routines does not affect the  current  run-
       ning thread.

RATIONALE
       None.

FUTURE DIRECTIONS
       None.
