#include <pthread.h>

int pthread_attr_getschedparam(const pthread_attr_t *restrict attr,

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

Description

The functions pthread_attr_setschedparam() and pthread_attr_getschedparam(), respectively, set and get the scheduling parameter attributes in the attr argument. The contents of the param structure are defined in <sched.h>. The only required member of param is sched_priority.

Return Values

If successful, the pthread_attr_setschedparam() and pthread_attr_getschedparam() functions return 0. Otherwise, an error number is returned to indicate the error.

Errors

The pthread_attr_setschedparam() function may fail if:

EINVAL

attr is invalid.

The pthread_attr_getschedparam() function may fail if:

EINVAL

attr or param is invalid.
