int pthread_attr_getschedpolicy(const pthread_attr_t *restrict
int *restrict policy);
int pthread_attr_setschedpolicy(pthread_attr_t *attr, int policy);
The pthread_attr_getschedpolicy() and pthread_attr_setschedpolicy() functions, respectively, shall get and set the schedpolicy attribute in the attr argument.
The supported values of policy shall include SCHED_FIFO, SCHED_RR, and SCHED_OTHER, which are defined in the <sched.h> header. When threads executing with the scheduling policy SCHED_FIFO, SCHED_RR, or SCHED_SPORADIC are waiting on a mutex, they shall acquire the mutex in priority order when the mutex is unlocked.
If successful, the pthread_attr_getschedpolicy() and pthread_attr_setschedpolicy() functions shall return zero; otherwise, an error number shall be returned to indicate the error.
The pthread_attr_setschedpolicy() function may fail if:
- The value of policy is not valid.
An attempt was made to set the attribute to an unsupported value.
These functions shall not return an error code of [EINTR].
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.
