pthread_rwlockattr_setpshared - set the process shared attribute
.In pthread.h int pthread_rwlockattr_setpshared "pthread_rwlockattr_t *attr" "int pshared"
The pthread_rwlockattr_setpshared function sets the process shared attribute of attr to the value referenced by pshared. The pshared argument 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_setpshared function will return zero. Otherwise an error number will be returned to indicate the error.
The pthread_rwlockattr_setpshared function will fail if:
| || The value specified by attr or pshared is invalid. |
