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

NAME
       pthread_rwlock_trywrlock,  pthread_rwlock_wrlock - lock a read-write lock object for writ-
       ing

SYNOPSIS
       #include <pthread.h>

       int pthread_rwlock_trywrlock(pthread_rwlock_t *rwlock);
       int pthread_rwlock_wrlock(pthread_rwlock_t *rwlock);

DESCRIPTION
       The  pthread_rwlock_trywrlock()	 function   shall   apply   a	write	lock   like   the
       pthread_rwlock_wrlock()	function,  with the exception that the function shall fail if any
       thread currently holds rwlock (for reading or writing).

       The pthread_rwlock_wrlock() function shall apply a write lock to the read-write lock  ref-
       erenced	by  rwlock. The calling thread acquires the write lock if no other thread (reader
       or writer) holds the read-write lock rwlock. Otherwise, the thread shall  block	until  it
       can  acquire  the lock. The calling thread may deadlock if at the time the call is made it
       holds the read-write lock (whether a read or write lock).

       Implementations may favor writers over readers to avoid writer starvation.

       Results are undefined if any of these functions are called  with  an  uninitialized  read-
       write lock.

       If  a  signal  is  delivered  to  a thread waiting for a read-write lock for writing, upon
       return from the signal handler the thread resumes waiting  for  the  read-write	lock  for
       writing as if it was not interrupted.

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

       If successful, the pthread_rwlock_wrlock() function shall return zero; otherwise, an error
       number shall be returned to indicate the error.

ERRORS
       The pthread_rwlock_trywrlock() function shall fail if:

       EBUSY  The read-write lock could not be acquired for writing because it was already locked
	      for reading or writing.

       The pthread_rwlock_trywrlock() and pthread_rwlock_wrlock() functions may fail if:

       EINVAL The  value  specified  by  rwlock  does not refer to an initialized read-write lock
	      object.

       The pthread_rwlock_wrlock() function may fail if:

       EDEADLK
	      The current thread already owns the read-write lock for writing or reading.

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

       The following sections are informative.

EXAMPLES
       None.

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

RATIONALE
       None.

FUTURE DIRECTIONS
       None.
