implementation of this interface may differ (consult the
corresponding Linux manual page for details of Linux behavior), or
the interface may not be implemented on Linux.
The posix_spawnattr_getflags() function shall obtain the value of the
spawn-flags attribute from the attributes object referenced by attr.
The posix_spawnattr_setflags() function shall set the spawn-flags
attribute in an initialized attributes object referenced by attr.
The spawn-flags attribute is used to indicate which process
attributes are to be changed in the new process image when invoking
posix_spawn() or posix_spawnp(). It is the bitwise-inclusive OR of
zero or more of the following flags:
These flags are defined in <spawn.h>. The default value of this
attribute shall be as if no flags were set.
Upon successful completion, posix_spawnattr_getflags() shall return
zero and store the value of the spawn-flags attribute of attr into
the object referenced by the flags parameter; otherwise, an error
number shall be returned to indicate the error.
Upon successful completion, posix_spawnattr_setflags() shall return
zero; otherwise, an error number shall be returned to indicate the
These functions may fail if:
EINVAL The value specified by attr is invalid.
The posix_spawnattr_setflags() function may fail if:
EINVAL The value of the attribute being set is not valid.
