       sched.h - execution scheduling (REALTIME)

       #include <sched.h>

       The <sched.h> header shall define the sched_param structure, which contains the scheduling
       parameters required for implementation of each supported scheduling policy. This structure
       shall contain at least the following member:

	      int	sched_priority	      Process execution scheduling priority.

       In  addition,  if  _POSIX_SPORADIC_SERVER or _POSIX_THREAD_SPORADIC_SERVER is defined, the
       sched_param structure defined in <sched.h> shall contain the following members in addition
       to those specified above:

	      int	      sched_ss_low_priority Low scheduling priority for
						    sporadic server.
	      struct timespec sched_ss_repl_period  Replenishment period for
						    sporadic server.
	      struct timespec sched_ss_init_budget  Initial budget for sporadic server.
	      int	      sched_ss_max_repl     Maximum pending replenishments for
						    sporadic server.

       Each  process  is  controlled  by an associated scheduling policy and priority. Associated
       with each policy is a priority range.  Each policy definition specifies the minimum prior-
       ity  range  for	that policy. The priority ranges for each policy may overlap the priority
       ranges of other policies.

       Four scheduling policies are defined; others may be defined  by	the  implementation.  The
       four standard policies are indicated by the values of the following symbolic constants:

	      First in-first out (FIFO) scheduling policy.

	      Round robin scheduling policy.

	      Sporadic server scheduling policy.

	      Another scheduling policy.

       The values of these constants are distinct.

       The  following  shall be declared as functions and may also be defined as macros. Function
       prototypes shall be provided.

	      int    sched_get_priority_max(int);
	      int    sched_get_priority_min(int);

	      int    sched_getparam(pid_t, struct sched_param *);
	      int    sched_getscheduler(pid_t);

	      int    sched_rr_get_interval(pid_t, struct timespec *);

	      int    sched_setparam(pid_t, const struct sched_param *);
	      int    sched_setscheduler(pid_t, int, const struct sched_param *);

	      int    sched_yield(void);

       Inclusion of the <sched.h> header may make visible all symbols from the <time.h> header.

       The following sections are informative.
