PTHREAD_ATTR_GETSCOPE(3C) Standard C Library Functions

NAME


pthread_attr_getscope, pthread_attr_setscope - get or set contentionscope
attribute

SYNOPSIS


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

int pthread_attr_getscope(const pthread_attr_t *restrict attr,
int *restrict contentionscope);


int pthread_attr_setscope(pthread_attr_t *attr, int contentionscope);


DESCRIPTION


The pthread_attr_setscope() and pthread_attr_getscope() functions are
used to set and get the contentionscope attribute in the attr object.


The contentionscope attribute can have the value PTHREAD_SCOPE_SYSTEM,
signifying system scheduling contention scope, or PTHREAD_SCOPE_PROCESS,
signifying process scheduling contention scope.


The symbols PTHREAD_SCOPE_SYSTEM and PTHREAD_SCOPE_PROCESS are defined by
the header <pthread.h>.

RETURN VALUES


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

ERRORS


The pthread_attr_setscope(), or pthread_attr_getscope(), function may
fail if:

EINVAL
attr or contentionscope 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.
