PTHREAD_COND_TIMEDWAI... BSD Library Functions Manual PTHREAD_COND_TIMEDWAI...

NAME
     pthread_cond_timedwait -- wait on a condition variable for	a specific
     amount of time

LIBRARY
     Reentrant C Library (libc_r, -lc_r)
     POSIX Threads Library (libpthread,	-lpthread)
     1:1 Threading Library (libthr, -lthr)

SYNOPSIS
     #include <pthread.h>

     int
     pthread_cond_timedwait(pthread_cond_t *cond, pthread_mutex_t *mutex,
	 const struct timespec *abstime);

DESCRIPTION
     The pthread_cond_timedwait() function atomically blocks the current
     thread waiting on the condition variable specified	by cond, and unblocks
     the mutex specified by mutex.  The	waiting	thread unblocks	only after an-
     other thread calls	pthread_cond_signal(3),	or pthread_cond_broadcast(3)
     with the same condition variable, or if the system	time reaches the time
     specified in abstime, and the current thread reacquires the lock on
     mutex.

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

ERRORS
     The pthread_cond_timedwait() function will	fail if:

     [EINVAL]		The value specified by cond, mutex or abstime is in-
			valid.

     [ETIMEDOUT]	The system time	has reached or exceeded	the time spec-
			ified in abstime.

SEE ALSO
     pthread_cond_broadcast(3),	pthread_cond_destroy(3), pthread_cond_init(3),
     pthread_cond_signal(3), pthread_cond_wait(3)

STANDARDS
     The pthread_cond_timedwait() function conforms to ISO/IEC 9945-1:1996
     ("POSIX.1").
