POSIX_SPAWNATTR_INIT(3) 	   BSD Library Functions Manual 	  POSIX_SPAWNATTR_INIT(3)

NAME
     posix_spawnattr_init, posix_spawnattr_destroy -- initialize and destroy spawn attributes
     object

LIBRARY
     Standard C Library (libc, -lc)

SYNOPSIS
     #include <spawn.h>

     int
     posix_spawnattr_init(posix_spawnattr_t * attr);

     int
     posix_spawnattr_destroy(posix_spawnattr_t * attr);

DESCRIPTION
     The posix_spawnattr_init() function initializes a spawn attributes object attr with the
     default value for all of the individual attributes used by the implementation.  Initializing
     an already initialized spawn attributes object may cause memory to be leaked.

     The posix_spawnattr_destroy() function destroys a spawn attributes object.  A destroyed attr
     attributes object can be reinitialized using posix_spawnattr_init().  The object should not
     be used after it has been destroyed.

     A spawn attributes object is of type posix_spawnattr_t (defined in <spawn.h>) and is used to
     specify the inheritance of process attributes across a spawn operation.

     The resulting spawn attributes object (possibly modified by setting individual attribute
     values), is used to modify the behavior of posix_spawn() or posix_spawnp().  After a spawn
     attributes object has been used to spawn a process by a call to a posix_spawn() or
     posix_spawnp(), any function affecting the attributes object (including destruction) will
     not affect any process that has been spawned in this way.

RETURN VALUES
     Upon successful completion, posix_spawnattr_init() and posix_spawnattr_destroy() return
     zero; otherwise, an error number is returned to indicate the error.

ERRORS
     The posix_spawnattr_init() function will fail if:

     [ENOMEM]		Insufficient memory exists to initialize the spawn file actions object.

SEE ALSO
     posix_spawn(3), posix_spawnp(3)

STANDARDS
     The posix_spawnattr_init() and posix_spawnattr_destroy() functions conform to IEEE Std
     1003.1-2001 (``POSIX.1'').

HISTORY
     The posix_spawnattr_init() and posix_spawnattr_destroy() functions first appeared in
     FreeBSD 8.0 and imported for NetBSD 6.
