pthread_attr_getinheritsched, pthread_attr_setinheritsched - get and set the inheritsched attribute (REALTIME THREADS)
int pthread_attr_getinheritsched(const pthread_attr_t *restrict attr,
int *restrict inheritsched);
int pthread_attr_setinheritsched(pthread_attr_t *attr,
The pthread_attr_getinheritsched(), and pthread_attr_setinheritsched() functions, respectively, shall get and set the inheritsched attribute in the attr argument.
When the attributes objects are used by pthread_create(), the inheritsched attribute determines how the other scheduling attributes of the created thread shall be set.
The symbols PTHREAD_INHERIT_SCHED and PTHREAD_EXPLICIT_SCHED are defined in the <pthread.h> header.
Specifies that the thread scheduling attributes shall be inherited from the creating thread, and the scheduling attributes in this attr argument shall be ignored.
Specifies that the thread scheduling attributes shall be set to the corresponding values from this attributes object.
The following thread scheduling attributes defined by IEEE Std 1003.1-2001 are affected by the inheritsched attribute: scheduling policy ( schedpolicy), scheduling parameters ( schedparam), and scheduling contention scope ( contentionscope).
If successful, the pthread_attr_getinheritsched() and pthread_attr_setinheritsched() functions shall return zero; otherwise, an error number shall be returned to indicate the error.
The pthread_attr_setinheritsched() function may fail if:
These functions shall not return an error code of [EINTR].
EINVAL The value of inheritsched is not valid. ENOTSUP An attempt was made to set the attribute to an unsupported value.
The following sections are informative.
After 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.
