pthread_rwlockattr_setpshared Syntax

#include <pthread.h>
int pthread_rwlockattr_setpshared(pthread_rwlockattr_t *attr, int pshared);

The pshared lock attribute has one of the following values:



Permits a read-write lock to be operated on by any thread that has access to the memory where the read-write lock is allocated. Operation on the read-write lock is permitted even if the lock is allocated in memory that is shared by multiple processes.



The read-write lock is only operated upon by threads created within the same process as the thread that initialized the read-write lock. If threads of differing processes attempt to operate on such a read-write lock, the behavior is undefined. The default value of the process-shared attribute is PTHREAD_PROCESS_PRIVATE.
