This manual page is part of the POSIX Programmer's Manual. The Linux
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 pthread_rwlockattr_destroy() function shall destroy a read-write
lock attributes object. A destroyed attr attributes object can be
reinitialized using pthread_rwlockattr_init(); the results of
otherwise referencing the object after it has been destroyed are
undefined. An implementation may cause pthread_rwlockattr_destroy()
to set the object referenced by attr to an invalid value.
The pthread_rwlockattr_init() function shall initialize a read-write
lock attributes object attr with the default value for all of the
attributes defined by the implementation.
Results are undefined if pthread_rwlockattr_init() is called
specifying an already initialized attr attributes object.
After a read-write lock attributes object has been used to initialize
one or more read-write locks, any function affecting the attributes
object (including destruction) shall not affect any previously
initialized read-write locks.
The behavior is undefined if the value specified by the attr argument
to pthread_rwlockattr_destroy() does not refer to an initialized
read-write lock attributes object.
The pthread_rwlockattr_init() function shall fail if:
ENOMEM Insufficient memory exists to initialize the read-write lock
These functions shall not return an error code of [EINTR].
The following sections are informative.
If an implementation detects that the value specified by the attr
argument to pthread_rwlockattr_destroy() does not refer to an
initialized read-write lock attributes object, it is recommended that
the function should fail and report an [EINVAL] error.
