int posix_spawnattr_getflags(const posix_spawnattr_t *restrict
short *restrict flags);
int posix_spawnattr_setflags(posix_spawnattr_t *attr, short flags);
The posix_spawnattr_getflags() function shall obtain the value of the spawn-flags attribute from the attributes object referenced by attr.
The posix_spawnattr_setflags() function shall set the spawn-flags attribute in an initialized attributes object referenced by attr.
The spawn-flags attribute is used to indicate which process attributes are to be changed in the new process image when invoking posix_spawn() or posix_spawnp(). It is the bitwise-inclusive OR of zero or more of the following flags:
These flags are defined in <spawn.h>. The default value of this attribute shall be as if no flags were set.
Upon successful completion, posix_spawnattr_getflags() shall return zero and store the value of the spawn-flags attribute of attr into the object referenced by the flags parameter; otherwise, an error number shall be returned to indicate the error.
Upon successful completion, posix_spawnattr_setflags() shall return zero; otherwise, an error number shall be returned to indicate the error.
These functions may fail if:
The value specified by attr is invalid.
The posix_spawnattr_setflags() function may fail if:
The value of the attribute being set is not valid.
The following sections are informative.
These functions are part of the Spawn option and need not be provided on all implementations.
