NAME
pthread_condattr_init, pthread_condattr_destroy - initialize or destroy condition variable attributes object SYNOPSIS
cc -mt [ flag... ] file... -lpthread [ library... ] #include <pthread.h> int pthread_condattr_init(pthread_condattr_t *attr); int pthread_condattr_destroy(pthread_condattr_t *attr); DESCRIPTION
The pthread_condattr_init() function initializes a condition variable attributes object attr with the default value for all of the attributes defined by the implementation. At present, the only attribute available is the scope of condition variables. The default scope of the attribute is PTHREAD_PROCESS_PRI- VATE. Attempts to initialize previously initialized condition variable attributes object will leave the storage allocated by the previous ini- tialization unallocated. After a condition variable attributes object has been used to initialize one or more condition variables, any function affecting the attributes object (including destruction) does not affect any previously initialized condition variables. The pthread_condattr_destroy() function destroys a condition variable attributes object; the object becomes, in effect, uninitialized. An implementation may cause pthread_condattr_destroy() to set the object referenced by attr to an invalid value. A destroyed condition vari- able attributes object can be re-initialized using pthread_condattr_init(); the results of otherwise referencing the object after it has been destroyed are undefined. Additional attributes, their default values, and the names of the associated functions to get and set those attribute values are implemen- tation-dependent. RETURN VALUES
If successful, the pthread_condattr_init() and pthread_condattr_destroy() functions return 0. Otherwise, an error number is returned to indicate the error. ERRORS
The pthread_condattr_init() function will fail if: ENOMEM Insufficient memory exists to initialize the condition variable attributes object. The pthread_condattr_destroy() function may fail if: EINVAL The value specified by attr is invalid. ATTRIBUTES

NAME
pthread_condattr_init(), pthread_condattr_destroy() - initialize or destroy a condition variable attributes object. SYNOPSIS
PARAMETERS
attr Pointer to the condition variable attributes object to be initialized or destroyed. DESCRIPTION
initializes the condition variable attributes object attr with the default values for all attributes. The attributes object describes a condition variable in detail and is passed to the condition variable initialization function. When a condition variable attributes object is used to initialize a condition variable, the values of the individual attributes determine the characteristics of the new condition variable. Attributes objects act like additional parameters to object initialization. A single attributes object can be used in multiple calls to the function When a condition variable is initialized with an attributes object, the attributes are, in effect, copied into the condition variable. Consequently, any change to the attributes object will not affect any previously initialized condition variables. Once all condition vari- ables needing a specific attributes object have been initialized, the attributes object is no longer needed. The condition variable attributes and their default values are: The default value is If an initialized condition variable attributes object is reinitialized, undefined behavior results. destroys the condition variable attributes object attr. The destroyed condition variable attributes object ceases to exist and its resources are reclaimed. Using attr after it has been destroyed results in undefined behavior. A destroyed condition variable attributes object can be reinitialized using the function Condition variables that have been already initialized using this attributes object are not affected by the destruction of the condition variable attributes object. RETURN VALUE
Upon successful completion, and return zero. Otherwise, an error number is returned to indicate the error (the variable is not set). ERRORS
If any of the following occur, the function returns the corresponding error number: [ENOMEM] There is insufficient memory available in which to initialize the condition variable attributes object. [EINVAL] attr is not a valid condition variable attributes object. For each of the following conditions, if the condition is detected, the function returns the corresponding error number: [EINVAL] attr is not a valid condition variable attributes object. AUTHOR
