pthread_condattr_setpshared Subroutine

Purpose

Sets the value of the pshared attribute of a condition attributes object.

Library

Threads Library (libpthreads.a)

Syntax

#include 

int pthread_condattr_setpshared (attr, pshared)

pthread_condattr_t *attr;

int pshared;

Description

The pthread_condattr_setpshared subroutine sets the value of the pshared
attribute of the condition attributes object attr. This attribute specifies the
process sharing of the condition variable created with this attributes object.

    Note: The pthread.h header file must be the first included file of each
    source file using the threads library. Otherwise, the -D_THREAD_SAFE
    compilation flag should be used, or the cc_r compiler used. In this case, the
    flag is automatically set.

Parameters

attr Specifies the condition attributes object.

pshared Specifies the process sharing to set. It must have one of the following
values:

PTHREAD_PROCESS_SHARED
  Specifies that the condition variable can be used by any thread that has access
  to the memory where it is allocated, even if these threads belong to different
  processes.
PTHREAD_PROCESS_PRIVATE
  Specifies that the condition variable shall only be used by threads within the
  same process as the thread that created it. This is the default value.

Return Values

Upon successful completion, 0 is returned. Otherwise, an error code is returned.

Error Codes

The pthread_condattr_setpshared subroutine is unsuccessful if the following is
true:

EINVAL The attr or pshared parameters are not valid.

Implementation Specifics

This subroutine is part of the Base Operating System (BOS) Runtime.
