LIBRARY

SYNOPSIS
     #include <pthread.h>

     pthread_attr_destroy(pthread_attr_t *attr);

	 void ** restrict stackaddr, size_t * restrict stacksize);

     int
     pthread_attr_getguardsize(const pthread_attr_t *attr, size_t *guardsize);

     int
     pthread_attr_setstackaddr(pthread_attr_t *attr, void *stackaddr);

	 int *inheritsched);

     int
     pthread_attr_setschedparam(pthread_attr_t *attr,
	 const struct sched_param *param);

     int
     pthread_attr_getschedparam(const pthread_attr_t *attr,
	 struct	sched_param *param);

     int
     pthread_attr_setschedpolicy(pthread_attr_t	*attr, int policy);

     int
     pthread_attr_getschedpolicy(const pthread_attr_t *attr, int *policy);

     int

     int
     pthread_attr_getscope(const pthread_attr_t	*attr, int *contentionscope);

DESCRIPTION
     Thread attributes are used	to specify parameters to pthread_create().
     One attribute object can be used in multiple calls	to pthread_create(),
     with or without modifications between calls.

     The pthread_attr_init() function initializes attr with all	the default
     thread attributes.

     The pthread_attr_destroy()	function destroys attr.

     The pthread_attr_set*() functions set the attribute that corresponds to
     each function name.

     The pthread_attr_get*() functions copy the	value of the attribute that
     corresponds to each function name to the location pointed to by the sec-
     ond function parameter.

RETURN VALUES
     If	successful, these functions return 0.  Otherwise, an error number is
     returned to indicate the error.

ERRORS
     The pthread_attr_init() function will fail	if:

     [ENOMEM]		Out of memory.

     The pthread_attr_destroy()	function will fail if:

     [EINVAL]		Invalid	value for attr.

     The pthread_attr_setstacksize() and pthread_attr_setstack() functions
     will fail if:

     [EINVAL]		stacksize is less than PTHREAD_STACK_MIN.

     The pthread_attr_setdetachstate() function	will fail if:

     [EINVAL]		Invalid	value for detachstate.

     The pthread_attr_setinheritsched()	function will fail if:

     [EINVAL]		Invalid	value for attr.

     The pthread_attr_setschedparam() function will fail if:

     [EINVAL]		Invalid	value for attr.

     [ENOTSUP]		Invalid	value for param.

     The pthread_attr_setschedpolicy() function	will fail if:

     [EINVAL]		Invalid	value for attr.

     [ENOTSUP]		Invalid	or unsupported value for policy.

     The pthread_attr_setscope() function will fail if:

     [EINVAL]		Invalid	value for attr.

     [ENOTSUP]		Invalid	or unsupported value for contentionscope.
