pthread_attr_setstackaddr(3) — Linux manual page



NAME         top

       pthread_attr_setstackaddr, pthread_attr_getstackaddr - set/get
       stack address attribute in thread attributes object

SYNOPSIS         top

       #include <pthread.h>

       int pthread_attr_setstackaddr(pthread_attr_t *attr, void *stackaddr);
       int pthread_attr_getstackaddr(const pthread_attr_t *restrict attr,
                                     void **restrict stackaddr);

       Compile and link with -pthread.

DESCRIPTION         top

       These functions are obsolete: do not use them.  Use
       pthread_attr_setstack(3) and pthread_attr_getstack(3) instead.

       The pthread_attr_setstackaddr() function sets the stack address
       attribute of the thread attributes object referred to by attr to
       the value specified in stackaddr.  This attribute specifies the
       location of the stack that should be used by a thread that is
       created using the thread attributes object attr.

       stackaddr should point to a buffer of at least PTHREAD_STACK_MIN
       bytes that was allocated by the caller.  The pages of the
       allocated buffer should be both readable and writable.

       The pthread_attr_getstackaddr() function returns the stack
       address attribute of the thread attributes object referred to by
       attr in the buffer pointed to by stackaddr.

RETURN VALUE         top

       On success, these functions return 0; on error, they return a
       nonzero error number.

ERRORS         top

       No errors are defined (but applications should nevertheless
       handle a possible error return).

VERSIONS         top

       These functions are provided by glibc since version 2.1.

CONFORMING TO         top

       POSIX.1-2001 specifies these functions but marks them as
       obsolete.  POSIX.1-2008 removes the specification of these

NOTES         top

       Do not use these functions!  They cannot be portably used, since
       they provide no way of specifying the direction of growth or the
       range of the stack.  For example, on architectures with a stack
       that grows downward, stackaddr specifies the next address past
       the highest address of the allocated stack area.  However, on
       architectures with a stack that grows upward, stackaddr specifies
       the lowest address in the allocated stack area.  By contrast, the
       stackaddr used by pthread_attr_setstack(3) and
       pthread_attr_getstack(3), is always a pointer to the lowest
       address in the allocated stack area (and the stacksize argument
       specifies the range of the stack).
