SYNOPSIS

#include <pthread.h>
int
pthread_rwlockattr_getpshared(const pthread_rwlockattr_t *attr, int *pshared);

DESCRIPTION

The pthread_rwlockattr_getpshared() function is used to get the process shared setting of a read/write lock attribute object. The setting is returned via pshared, and may be one of two values:
PTHREAD_PROCESS_SHARED
Any thread of any process that has access to the memory where the read/write lock resides can manipulate the lock.
PTHREAD_PROCESS_PRIVATE
Only threads created within the same process as the thread that initialized the read/write lock can manipulate the lock. This is the default value.

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

pthread_rwlockattr_getpshared() may fail if:
 
 
[EINVAL]
The value specified by attr is invalid.
