pthread_rwlock_init(3P)				       pthread_rwlock_init(3P)

NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

     pthread_rwlock_init, pthread_rwlock_destroy - initialize/destroy a	readwrite
 lock	object

C SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

     #include <pthread.h>

     int pthread_rwlock_init(pthread_rwlock_t *rwlock,
	  pthread_rwlockattr_t *attr);

     int pthread_rwlock_destroy(pthread_rwlock_t *rwlock);

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

     Read-write	locks may be initialized either	dynamically, by	calling
     pthread_rwlock_init(), or statically, via the macro

     The personality of	the read-write lock is determined by the attribute
     structure attr passed with	the call to pthread_rwlock_init().  These
     attributes	are set	by calls to pthread_rwlockattr_init() and the various
     pthread read-write	lock attribute functions.  If attr is null (or the
     read-write	lock is	statically initialized), the default attributes	are

     The routine pthread_rwlock_destroy() uninitializes	the read-write lock
     object referenced by rwlock.

DIAGNOSTICS    [Toc]    [Back]

     The read-write lock object	functions return zero if successful;
     otherwise,	an error number	is returned.

     pthread_rwlock_destroy() can return the following error:

     [EBUSY]	    The	read-write lock	is currently held by any thread.
