NAME


pthread_attr_getschedparam, pthread_attr_setschedparam - get or set
schedparam attribute

SYNOPSIS


cc -mt [ flag... ] file... -lpthread [ library... ]
#include <pthread.h>

int pthread_attr_getschedparam(const pthread_attr_t *restrict attr,
struct sched_param *restrict param);


int pthread_attr_setschedparam(pthread_attr_t *restrict attr,
const struct sched_param *restrict param);


DESCRIPTION


The functions pthread_attr_setschedparam() and
pthread_attr_getschedparam(), respectively, set and get the scheduling
parameter attributes in the attr argument. The contents of the param
structure are defined in <sched.h>. The only required member of param is
sched_priority.

RETURN VALUES


If successful, the pthread_attr_setschedparam() and
pthread_attr_getschedparam() functions return 0. Otherwise, an error
number is returned to indicate the error.

ERRORS


The pthread_attr_setschedparam() function may fail if:

EINVAL
attr is invalid.


The pthread_attr_getschedparam() function may fail if:

EINVAL
attr or param is invalid.


USAGE


After these attributes have been set, a thread can be created with the
specified attributes using pthread_create(). Using these routines does
not affect the current running thread.
