Linux 2.6 - man page for pthread_rwlock_timedrdlock (linux section 3posix)


       pthread_rwlock_timedrdlock - lock a read-write lock for reading

       #include <pthread.h>
       #include <time.h>

       int pthread_rwlock_timedrdlock(pthread_rwlock_t *restrict rwlock,
	      const struct timespec *restrict abs_timeout);

       The  pthread_rwlock_timedrdlock()  function shall apply a read lock to the read-write lock
       referenced by rwlock as in the pthread_rwlock_rdlock() function. However, if the lock can-
       not  be	acquired without waiting for other threads to unlock the lock, this wait shall be
       terminated when the specified timeout expires.  The timeout shall expire when the absolute
       time specified by abs_timeout passes, as measured by the clock on which timeouts are based
       (that is, when the value of that clock equals or exceeds abs_timeout), or if the  absolute
       time specified by abs_timeout has already been passed at the time of the call.

       If the Timers option is supported, the timeout shall be based on the CLOCK_REALTIME clock.
       If the Timers option is not supported, the timeout shall be based on the system	clock  as
       returned  by the time() function. The resolution of the timeout shall be the resolution of
       the clock on which it is based. The timespec data type is defined in the <time.h>  header.
       Under  no circumstances shall the function fail with a timeout if the lock can be acquired
       immediately. The validity of the abs_timeout parameter need not be checked if the lock can
       be immediately acquired.

       If  a  signal that causes a signal handler to be executed is delivered to a thread blocked
       on a read-write lock via a call to pthread_rwlock_timedrdlock(), upon return from the sig-
       nal handler the thread shall resume waiting for the lock as if it was not interrupted.

       The  calling  thread may deadlock if at the time the call is made it holds a write lock on
       rwlock. The results are undefined if this function is called with an  uninitialized  read-
       write lock.

       The pthread_rwlock_timedrdlock() function shall return zero if the lock for reading on the
       read-write lock object referenced by rwlock is acquired. Otherwise, an error number  shall
       be returned to indicate the error.

       The pthread_rwlock_timedrdlock() function shall fail if:

	      The lock could not be acquired before the specified timeout expired.

       The pthread_rwlock_timedrdlock() function may fail if:

       EAGAIN The  read  lock  could not be acquired because the maximum number of read locks for
	      lock would be exceeded.

	      The calling thread already holds a write lock on rwlock.

       EINVAL The value specified by rwlock does not refer  to	an  initialized  read-write  lock
	      object,  or  the	abs_timeout nanosecond value is less than zero or greater than or
	      equal to 1000 million.

       This function shall not return an error code of [EINTR].

       The following sections are informative.


       Applications using this function may be subject to priority inversion, as discussed in the
       Base Definitions volume of IEEE Std 1003.1-2001, Section 3.285, Priority Inversion.

       The  pthread_rwlock_timedrdlock() function is part of the Threads and Timeouts options and
       need not be provided on all implementations.
