pthread_rwlockattr_getpshared(3p) [posix man page]


This manual page is part of the POSIX Programmer's Manual. The Linux implementation of this interface may differ (consult the correspond- ing Linux manual page for details of Linux behavior), or the interface may not be implemented on Linux. 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_rwlockattr_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 implemen- tation-defined. The behavior is undefined if the value specified by the attr argument to pthread_rwlockattr_getpshared() or pthread_rwlockattr_setpshared() does not refer to an initialized read-write lock attributes object. 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_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]. The following sections are informative. EXAMPLES
