PROLOG         top

       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.

NAME         top

       posix_spawnattr_destroy, posix_spawnattr_init — destroy and
       initialize spawn attributes object (ADVANCED REALTIME)

SYNOPSIS         top

       #include <spawn.h>

       int posix_spawnattr_destroy(posix_spawnattr_t *attr);
       int posix_spawnattr_init(posix_spawnattr_t *attr);

DESCRIPTION         top

       The posix_spawnattr_destroy() function shall destroy a spawn
       attributes object. A destroyed attr attributes object can be
       reinitialized using posix_spawnattr_init(); the results of
       otherwise referencing the object after it has been destroyed are
       undefined. An implementation may cause posix_spawnattr_destroy()
       to set the object referenced by attr to an invalid value.

       The posix_spawnattr_init() function shall initialize a spawn
       attributes object attr with the default value for all of the
       individual attributes used by the implementation. Results are
       undefined if posix_spawnattr_init() is called specifying an
       already initialized attr attributes object.

       A spawn attributes object is of type posix_spawnattr_t (defined
       in <spawn.h>) and is used to specify the inheritance of process
       attributes across a spawn operation. POSIX.1‐2008 does not define
       comparison or assignment operators for the type

       Each implementation shall document the individual attributes it
       uses and their default values unless these values are defined by
       POSIX.1‐2008.  Attributes not defined by POSIX.1‐2008, their
       default values, and the names of the associated functions to get
       and set those attribute values are implementation-defined.

       The resulting spawn attributes object (possibly modified by
       setting individual attribute values), is used to modify the
       behavior of posix_spawn() or posix_spawnp().  After a spawn
       attributes object has been used to spawn a process by a call to a
       posix_spawn() or posix_spawnp(), any function affecting the
       attributes object (including destruction) shall not affect any
       process that has been spawned in this way.

RETURN VALUE         top

       Upon successful completion, posix_spawnattr_destroy() and
       posix_spawnattr_init() shall return zero; otherwise, an error
       number shall be returned to indicate the error.

ERRORS         top

       The posix_spawnattr_init() function shall fail if:

       ENOMEM Insufficient memory exists to initialize the spawn
              attributes object.

       The posix_spawnattr_destroy() function may fail if:

       EINVAL The value specified by attr is invalid.

       The following sections are informative.

EXAMPLES         top



       These functions are part of the Spawn option and need not be
       provided on all implementations.

RATIONALE         top

       The original spawn interface proposed in POSIX.1‐2008 defined the
       attributes that specify the inheritance of process attributes
       across a spawn operation as a structure. In order to be able to
       separate optional individual attributes under their appropriate
       options (that is, the spawn-schedparam and spawn-schedpolicy
       attributes depending upon the Process Scheduling option), and
       also for extensibility and consistency with the newer POSIX
       interfaces, the attributes interface has been changed to an
       opaque data type. This interface now consists of the type
       posix_spawnattr_t, representing a spawn attributes object,
       together with associated functions to initialize or destroy the
       attributes object, and to set or get each individual attribute.
       Although the new object-oriented interface is more verbose than
       the original structure, it is simple to use, more extensible, and
       easy to implement.
