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

NAME
       pthread_rwlockattr_getpshared,	pthread_rwlockattr_setpshared	-   get   and	set   the
       process-shared attribute of the read-write lock attributes object

SYNOPSIS
       #include <pthread.h>

       int pthread_rwlockattr_getpshared(const pthread_rwlockattr_t *
	      restrict attr, int *restrict pshared);
       int pthread_rwlockattr_setpshared(pthread_rwlockattr_t *attr,
	      int pshared);

DESCRIPTION
       The pthread_rwlockattr_getpshared() function shall obtain the value of the  process-shared
       attribute  from	the initialized attributes object referenced by attr. The pthread_rwlock-
       attr_setpshared() function shall  set  the  process-shared  attribute  in  an  initialized
       attributes object referenced by attr.

       The process-shared attribute shall be set to PTHREAD_PROCESS_SHARED to permit a read-write
       lock to be operated upon by any thread that has access to the memory where the  read-write
       lock  is  allocated,  even if the read-write lock is allocated in memory that is shared by
       multiple processes. If the process-shared attribute is PTHREAD_PROCESS_PRIVATE, the  read-
       write  lock  shall only be operated upon by threads created within the same process as the
       thread that initialized the read-write lock; if threads of differing processes attempt  to
       operate	on  such  a  read-write lock, the behavior is undefined. The default value of the
       process-shared attribute shall be PTHREAD_PROCESS_PRIVATE.

       Additional attributes, their default values, and the names of the associated functions  to
       get and set those attribute values are implementation-defined.

RETURN VALUE
       Upon successful completion, the pthread_rwlockattr_getpshared() function shall return zero
       and store the value of the process-shared attribute of attr into the object referenced  by
       the pshared parameter. Otherwise, an error number shall be returned to indicate the error.

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

ERRORS
       The pthread_rwlockattr_getpshared() and pthread_rwlockattr_setpshared() functions may fail
       if:

       EINVAL The value specified by attr is invalid.

       The pthread_rwlockattr_setpshared() function may fail if:

       EINVAL The  new value specified for the attribute is outside the range of legal values for
	      that attribute.

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