pthread_rwlockattr_getpshared(3p) — Linux manual page



PROLOG         top

       This manual page is part of the POSIX Programmer's Manual.  The
       Linux implementation of this interface may differ (consult the
       corresponding Linux manual page for details of Linux behavior),
       or the interface may not be implemented on Linux.

NAME         top

       pthread_rwlockattr_getpshared, pthread_rwlockattr_setpshared —
       get and set the process-shared attribute of the read-write lock
       attributes object

SYNOPSIS         top

       #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         top

       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. See Section
       2.9.9, Synchronization Object Copies and Alternative Mappings for
       further requirements. 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

       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         top

       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         top

       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].
