PTHREAD_COND_TIMEDWAIT(3) Library Functions Manual PTHREAD_COND_TIMEDWAIT(3)

NAME

pthread_cond_timedwaitwait on a condition variable for a specific amount of time

SYNOPSIS

#include <pthread.h>
int
pthread_cond_timedwait(pthread_cond_t *cond, pthread_mutex_t *mutex, const struct timespec *abstime);

DESCRIPTION

The pthread_cond_timedwait() function atomically blocks the current thread waiting on the condition variable specified by cond, and unblocks the mutex specified by mutex. The waiting thread unblocks only after another thread calls pthread_cond_signal(3), or pthread_cond_broadcast(3) with the same condition variable, or if the system time reaches the time specified in abstime, and the current thread reacquires the lock on mutex.

RETURN VALUES

If successful, the pthread_cond_timedwait() function will return zero. Otherwise an error number will be returned to indicate the error.

ERRORS

pthread_cond_timedwait() will fail if:
 
 
[EINVAL]
The value specified by cond, mutex or abstime is invalid.
 
 
[ETIMEDOUT]
The system time has reached or exceeded the time specified in abstime.
