PTHREAD_ATTR_GETINHERITSCHED(3C) Standard C Library Functions

NAME


pthread_attr_getinheritsched, pthread_attr_setinheritsched - get or set
inheritsched attribute

SYNOPSIS


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

int pthread_attr_getinheritsched(const pthread_attr_t *restrict attr,
int *restrict inheritsched);


int pthread_attr_setinheritsched(pthread_attr_t *attr, int inheritsched);


DESCRIPTION


The functions pthread_attr_setinheritsched() and
pthread_attr_getinheritsched(), respectively, set and get the
inheritsched attribute in the attr argument.


When the attribute objects are used by pthread_create(), the inheritsched
attribute determines how the other scheduling attributes of the created
thread are to be set:

PTHREAD_INHERIT_SCHED
Specifies that the scheduling policy and
associated attributes are to be inherited from
the creating thread, and the scheduling
attributes in this attr argument are to be
ignored.


PTHREAD_EXPLICIT_SCHED
Specifies that the scheduling policy and
associated attributes are to be set to the
corresponding values from this attribute
object.


The symbols PTHREAD_INHERIT_SCHED and PTHREAD_EXPLICIT_SCHED are
defined in the header <pthread.h>.

RETURN VALUES


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

ERRORS


The pthread_attr_setinheritsched() or pthread_attr_getinheritsched()
functions may fail if:

EINVAL
attr or inheritsched 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.
