       mq_getsetattr - get/set message queue attributes

SYNOPSIS         top

       #include <mqueue.h>

       int mq_getsetattr(mqd_t mqdes, const struct mq_attr *newattr,
                        struct mq_attr *oldattr);

       Note: There is no glibc wrapper for this system call; see NOTES.

DESCRIPTION         top

       Do not use this system call.

       This is the low-level system call used to implement mq_getattr(3)
       and mq_setattr(3).  For an explanation of how this system call
       operates, see the description of mq_setattr(3).

CONFORMING TO         top

       This interface is nonstandard; avoid its use.

NOTES         top

       Glibc does not provide a wrapper for this system call; call it
       using syscall(2).  (Actually, never call it unless you are
       writing a C library!)
