     #include <pthread.h>

     pthread_rwlockattr_setpshared(pthread_rwlockattr_t *attr, int pshared);

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

     The pthread_rwlockattr_setpshared() function sets the process shared

 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

RETURN VALUES    [Toc]    [Back]

     If successful, the pthread_rwlockattr_setpshared() function will return
     zero.  Otherwise an error number will be returned to indicate the error.
