POSIX_SPAWNATTR_GETFLAGS(3C) Standard C Library Functions

NAME


posix_spawnattr_getflags, posix_spawnattr_setflags - get and set spawn-
flags attribute of spawn attributes object

SYNOPSIS


#include <spawn.h>

int posix_spawnattr_getflags(const posix_spawnattr_t *restrict attr,
short *restrict flags);


int posix_spawnattr_setflags(posix_spawnattr_t * attr, short flags);


DESCRIPTION


The posix_spawnattr_getflags() function obtains the value of the spawn-
flags attribute from the attributes object referenced by attr.


The posix_spawnattr_setflags() function sets the spawn-flags attribute in
an initialized attributes object referenced by attr.


The spawn-flags attribute is used to indicate which process attributes
are to be changed in the new process image when invoking posix_spawn(3C)
or posix_spawnp(3C). It is the bitwise inclusive-OR of zero or more of
the following flags:
POSIX_SPAWN_RESETIDS
POSIX_SPAWN_SETPGROUP
POSIX_SPAWN_SETSIGDEF
POSIX_SPAWN_SETSIGMASK
POSIX_SPAWN_SETSCHEDPARAM
POSIX_SPAWN_SETSCHEDULER
POSIX_SPAWN_NOSIGCHLD_NP
POSIX_SPAWN_WAITPID_NP
POSIX_SPAWN_NOEXECERR_NP


These flags are defined in <spawn.h>. The default value of this attribute
is as if no flags were set.

RETURN VALUES


Upon successful completion, posix_spawnattr_getflags() returns 0 and
stores the value of the spawn-flags attribute of attr into the object
referenced by the flags parameter. Otherwise, an error number is returned
to indicate the error.


Upon successful completion, posix_spawnattr_setflags() returns 0.
Otherwise, an error number is returned to indicate the error.

ERRORS


These functions may fail if:

EINVAL
The value specified by attr is invalid.


The posix_spawnattr_setflags() function may fail if:

EINVAL
The value of the attribute being set is not valid.
