NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

       pthread_mutexattr_destroy  -  Destroys the specified mutex
       attributes object

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

       #include <pthread.h>

       int pthread_mutexattr_destroy(
               pthread_mutexattr_t *attr );

LIBRARY    [Toc]    [Back]

       DECthreads POSIX 1003.1c Library (libpthread.so)

STANDARDS    [Toc]    [Back]

       Interfaces documented on this reference  page  conform  to
       industry standards as follows:

       IEEE  Std  1003.1c-1995,  POSIX System Application Program

PARAMETERS    [Toc]    [Back]

       Mutex attributes object to be destroyed.

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

       This routine destroys a mutex attributes object--that  is,
       the  object  becomes uninitialized. Call this routine when
       your  program  no  longer  needs   the   specified   mutex
       attributes object.

       After  this  routine is called, DECthreads may reclaim the
       storage used by the mutex attributes object. Mutexes  that
       were created using this attributes object are not affected
       by the destruction of the mutex attributes object.

       The results of calling this routine are unpredictable,  if
       the  attributes object specified in the attr argument does
       not exist.

RETURN VALUES    [Toc]    [Back]

       If an error condition  occurs,  this  routine  returns  an
       integer  value  indicating  the  type  of  error. Possible
       return values are as follows: Successful completion.   The
       value specified by attr is invalid.
