PTHREAD_CONDATTR(3)	 BSD Library Functions Manual	   PTHREAD_CONDATTR(3)

NAME
     pthread_condattr_init, pthread_condattr_destroy,
     pthread_condattr_getclock, pthread_condattr_setclock,
     pthread_condattr_getpshared, pthread_condattr_setpshared, — condition
     attribute operations

LIBRARY
     POSIX Threads Library (libpthread, -lpthread)

SYNOPSIS
     #include <pthread.h>

     int
     pthread_condattr_init(pthread_condattr_t *attr);

     int
     pthread_condattr_destroy(pthread_condattr_t *attr);

     int
     pthread_condattr_getclock(pthread_condattr_t * restrict attr,
	 clock_t * restrict clock_id);

     int
     pthread_condattr_setclock(pthread_condattr_t *attr, clock_t clock_id);

     int
     pthread_condattr_getpshared(pthread_condattr_t * restrict attr,
	 int * restrict pshared);

     int
     pthread_condattr_setpshared(pthread_condattr_t *attr, int pshared);

DESCRIPTION
     Condition attribute objects are used to specify parameters to
     pthread_cond_init().

     The pthread_condattr_init() function initializes a condition attribute
     object with the default attributes.

     The pthread_condattr_destroy() function destroys a condition attribute
     object.

     The pthread_condattr_getclock() function will put the value of the clock
     attribute from attr into the memory area pointed to by clock_id.  The
     pthread_condattr_setclock() function will set the clock attribute of attr
     to the value specified in clock_id.  The clock attribute affects the
     interpretation of abstime in pthread_cond_timedwait(3) and may be set to
     CLOCK_REALTIME (default) or CLOCK_MONOTONIC.

     The pthread_condattr_getpshared() function will put the value of the
     process-shared attribute from attr into the memory area pointed to by
     pshared.  The pthread_condattr_setpshared() function will set the
     process-shared attribute of attr to the value specified in pshared.  The
     argument pshared may have one of the following values:

     PTHREAD_PROCESS_PRIVATE  The condition variable it is attached to may
			      only be accessed by threads in the same process
			      as the one that created the object.

     PTHREAD_PROCESS_SHARED   The condition variable it is attached to may be
			      accessed by threads in processes other than the
			      one that created the object.

RETURN VALUES
     If successful, these functions return 0.  Otherwise, an error number is
     returned to indicate the error.

ERRORS
     The pthread_condattr_init() function will fail if:

     [ENOMEM]		Out of memory.

     The pthread_condattr_destroy() function will fail if:

     [EINVAL]		Invalid value for attr.

     The pthread_condattr_setclock() function will fail if:

     [EINVAL]		The value specified in clock_id is not one of the
			allowed values.

     The pthread_condattr_setpshared() function will fail if:

     [EINVAL]		The value specified in pshared is not one of the
			allowed values.

SEE ALSO
     pthread_cond_init(3), pthread_cond_timedwait(3)

STANDARDS
     The pthread_condattr_init() and pthread_condattr_destroy() functions con‐
     form to ISO/IEC 9945-1:1996 (“POSIX.1”)

BUGS
     The implementation of condition variables does not fully conform to IEEE
     Std 1003.2 (“POSIX.2”) because the process-shared attribute is ignored;
     if any value other than PTHREAD_PROCESSES_PRIVATE is specified in a call
     to pthread_condattr_setpshared(), it will return EINVAL.
