#include <pthread.h>

int pthread_rwlockattr_destroy(pthread_rwlockattr_t *attr);

pthread_rwlockattr_destroy(3THR) destroys a read-write lock attributes object. The effect of subsequent use of the object is undefined until the object is re-initialized by another call to pthread_rwlockattr_init() An implementation can cause pthread_rwlockattr_destroy() to set the object referenced by attr to an invalid value.

Return Values

If successful, pthread_rwlockattr_destroy() returns zero. Otherwise, an error number is returned to indicate the error.


The value specified by attr is invalid.
