NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

     pthread_rwlock_init - initialize a read/write lock

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

     #include <pthread.h>

     pthread_rwlock_init(pthread_rwlock_t *lock,
             const pthread_rwlockattr_t *attr);

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

     The pthread_rwlock_init() function is used to  initialize  a
     lock,  with  attributes specified by attr.  If attr is NULL,
the default
     read/write lock attributes are used.

     The results of calling pthread_rwlock_init() with an already
     lock are undefined.

RETURN VALUES    [Toc]    [Back]

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

ERRORS    [Toc]    [Back]

     The pthread_rwlock_init() function will fail if:

     [EAGAIN]       The  system  lacked  the  necessary resources
(other than memory)
 to initialize the lock.

     [ENOMEM]      Insufficient memory exists to  initialize  the

     [EPERM]        The caller does not have sufficient privilege
to perform
                   the operation.

     The pthread_rwlock_init() function may fail if:

     [EBUSY]       The system has detected an attempt to  re-initialize the object
 referenced by lock, a previously initialized but not
                   yet destroyed read/write lock.

     [EINVAL]      The value specified by attr is invalid.
