NAME         top

       pthread_rwlock_timedwrlock — lock a read-write lock for writing

SYNOPSIS         top

       #include <pthread.h>
       #include <time.h>

       int pthread_rwlock_timedwrlock(pthread_rwlock_t *restrict rwlock,
           const struct timespec *restrict abstime);

DESCRIPTION         top

       The pthread_rwlock_timedwrlock() function shall apply a write
       lock to the read-write lock referenced by rwlock as in the
       pthread_rwlock_wrlock() function. However, if the lock cannot be
       acquired without waiting for other threads to unlock the lock,
       this wait shall be terminated when the specified timeout expires.
       The timeout shall expire when the absolute time specified by
       abstime passes, as measured by the clock on which timeouts are
       based (that is, when the value of that clock equals or exceeds
       abstime), or if the absolute time specified by abstime has
       already been passed at the time of the call.

       The timeout shall be based on the CLOCK_REALTIME clock.  The
       resolution of the timeout shall be the resolution of the
       CLOCK_REALTIME clock. The timespec data type is defined in the
       <time.h> header. Under no circumstances shall the function fail
       with a timeout if the lock can be acquired immediately. The
       validity of the abstime parameter need not be checked if the lock
       can be immediately acquired.

       If a signal that causes a signal handler to be executed is
       delivered to a thread blocked on a read-write lock via a call to
       pthread_rwlock_timedwrlock(), upon return from the signal handler
       the thread shall resume waiting for the lock as if it was not

       The calling thread may deadlock if at the time the call is made
       it holds the read-write lock. The results are undefined if this
       function is called with an uninitialized read-write lock.

RETURN VALUE         top

       The pthread_rwlock_timedwrlock() function shall return zero if
       the lock for writing on the read-write lock object referenced by
       rwlock is acquired. Otherwise, an error number shall be returned
       to indicate the error.

ERRORS         top

       The pthread_rwlock_timedwrlock() function shall fail if:

              The lock could not be acquired before the specified
              timeout expired.

       The pthread_rwlock_timedwrlock() function may fail if:

              A deadlock condition was detected or the calling thread
              already holds the rwlock.

       EINVAL The abstime nanosecond value is less than zero or greater
              than or equal to 1000 million.

       This function shall not return an error code of [EINTR].

EXAMPLES         top



       Applications using this function may be subject to priority
       inversion, as discussed in the Base Definitions volume of
       POSIX.1‐2017, Section 3.291, Priority Inversion.

RATIONALE         top

       If an implementation detects that the value specified by the
       rwlock argument to pthread_rwlock_timedwrlock() does not refer to
       an initialized read-write lock object, it is recommended that the
       function should fail and report an [EINVAL] error.
