PTHREAD_RWLOCK_INIT(3) Library Functions Manual PTHREAD_RWLOCK_INIT(3)

NAME

pthread_rwlock_initinitialize a read/write lock

SYNOPSIS

#include <pthread.h>
int
pthread_rwlock_init(pthread_rwlock_t *lock, const pthread_rwlockattr_t *attr);

DESCRIPTION

The pthread_rwlock_init() function is used to initialize a read/write lock, with attributes specified by attr. If attr is NULL, the default read/write lock attributes are used.
The results of calling pthread_rwlock_init() with an already initialized lock are undefined.

RETURN VALUES

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

ERRORS

The pthread_rwlock_init() function will fail if:
 
 
[EAGAIN]
The system lacked the necessary resources (other than memory) to initialize the lock.
 
 
[ENOMEM]
Insufficient memory exists to initialize the lock.
 
 
[EPERM]
The caller does not have sufficient privilege to perform the operation.
The pthread_rwlock_init() function may fail if:
 
 
[EBUSY]
The system has detected an attempt to re-initialize the object referenced by lock, a previously initialized but not yet destroyed read/write lock.
 
 
[EINVAL]
The value specified by attr is invalid.
