NAMEpthread_attr_getscope, pthread_attr_setscope - get and set the contentionscope attribute ( REALTIME THREADS)
DESCRIPTIONThe pthread_attr_getscope() and pthread_attr_setscope() functions, respectively, shall get and set the contentionscope attribute in the attr object.
The contentionscope attribute may have the values PTHREAD_SCOPE_SYSTEM, signifying system scheduling contention scope, or PTHREAD_SCOPE_PROCESS, signifying process scheduling contention scope. The symbols PTHREAD_SCOPE_SYSTEM and PTHREAD_SCOPE_PROCESS are defined in the <pthread.h> header.
RETURN VALUEIf successful, the pthread_attr_getscope() and pthread_attr_setscope() functions shall return zero; otherwise, an error number shall be returned to indicate the error.
ERRORSThe pthread_attr_setscope() function may fail if:
- The value of contentionscope is not valid.
An attempt was made to set the attribute to an unsupported value.
These functions shall not return an error code of [EINTR].
The following sections are informative.
APPLICATION USAGEAfter these attributes have been set, a thread can be created with the specified attributes using pthread_create(). Using these routines does not affect the current running thread.
