NAME

     pthread_rwlockattr_setpshared -- set the process shared attribute


SYNOPSIS

     #include <pthread.h>

     int
     pthread_rwlockattr_setpshared(pthread_rwlockattr_t *attr, int pshared);


DESCRIPTION

     The pthread_rwlockattr_setpshared() function sets the process-shared
     attribute of attr to the value referenced by pshared.  pshared may be one
     of two values:

     PTHREAD_PROCESS_SHARED   Any thread of any process that has access to the
                              memory where the read/write lock resides can
                              manipulate the lock.

     PTHREAD_PROCESS_PRIVATE  Only threads created within the same process as
                              the thread that initialized the read/write lock
                              can manipulate the lock.  This is the default
                              value.


RETURN VALUES

     If successful, the pthread_rwlockattr_setpshared() function will return
     zero.  Otherwise, an error number will be returned to indicate the error.


SEE ALSO

     pthread_rwlock_init(3), pthread_rwlockattr_init(3),

STANDARDS

     The pthread_rwlockattr_setpshared() function is expected to conform to
     Version 2 of the Single UNIX Specification (``SUSv2'').


ERRORS

     pthread_rwlockattr_setpshared() will fail if:

     [EINVAL]           The value specified by attr or pshared is invalid.


HISTORY

     The pthread_rwlockattr_setpshared() function first appeared in
     FreeBSD 3.0.
