PTHREAD_RWLOCK_INIT(3)   BSD Library Functions Manual   PTHREAD_RWLOCK_INIT(3)

NAME
     pthread_rwlock_init -- initialize a read/write lock

SYNOPSIS
     #include <pthread.h>

     int
     pthread_rwlock_init(pthread_rwlock_t *restrict rwlock, const pthread_rwlockattr_t *restrict attr);

DESCRIPTION
     The pthread_rwlock_init() function is used to initialize a read/write lock, with attributes specified
     by attr.  If attr is NULL, the default read/write lock attributes are used.

     The results of calling pthread_rwlock_init() with an already initialized lock are undefined.

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

SEE ALSO
     pthread_rwlock_destroy(3), pthread_rwlockattr_init(3), pthread_rwlockattr_setpshared(3)

STANDARDS
     The pthread_rwlock_init() function is expected to conform to Version 2 of the Single UNIX Specification
     (``SUSv2'').

ERRORS
     The pthread_rwlock_init() function will fail if:

     [EAGAIN]           The system lacked the necessary resources (other than memory) to initialize the
                        lock.

     [ENOMEM]           Insufficient memory exists to initialize the lock.

     [EPERM]            The caller does not have sufficient privilege to perform the operation.

     The pthread_rwlock_init() function may fail if:

     [EBUSY]            The system has detected an attempt to re-initialize the object referenced by rwlock,
                        a previously initialized but not yet destroyed read/write lock.

     [EINVAL]           The value specified by attr is invalid.

HISTORY
     The pthread_rwlock_init() function first appeared in FreeBSD 3.0.

BUGS
     The PTHREAD_PROCESS_SHARED attribute is not supported.
