Destroy the spawn attributes object.
#include <posix_spawnattr.h> int posix_spawnattr_destroy(posix_spawnattr_t *attrp);
- The posix_spawnattr_destroy() function destroys a spawn attributes object attrp with the default value for all of the individual attributes used by the implementation.
- A spawn attributes object is of type posix_spawnattr_t (defined in <spawn.h>) and is used to specify the inheritance of process attributes across a spawn operation. IEEE Std 1003.1-2001 doesn't define comparison or assignment operators for the type posix_spawnattr_t.
Use the -l c option to qcc to link against this library. This library is usually included automatically.
The posix_spawnattr_destroy() function shall destroy a spawn attributes object. A destroyed attrp attributes object can be reinitialized using posix_spawnattr_init(); the results of otherwise referencing the object after it has been destroyed are undefined. An implementation may cause posix_spawnattr_destroy() to set the object referenced by attr to an invalid value. The posix_spawnattr_init() function shall initialize a spawn attributes object attr with the default value for all of the individual attributes used by the implementation. Results are undefined if posix_spawnattr_init() is called specifying an already initialized attr attributes object.
A spawn attributes object is of type posix_spawnattr_t (defined in <spawn.h>) and is used to specify the inheritance of process attributes across a spawn operation. IEEE Std 1003.1-2001 does not define comparison or assignment operators for the type posix_spawnattr_t. Each implementation shall document the individual attributes it uses and their default values unless these values are defined by IEEE Std 1003.1-2001. Attributes not defined by IEEE Std 1003.1-2001, their default values, and the names of the associated functions to get and set those attribute values are implementation-defined.
The resulting spawn attributes object (possibly modified by setting individual attribute values), is used to modify the behavior of posix_spawn() or posix_spawnp(). After a spawn attributes object has been used to spawn a process by a call to a posix_spawn() or posix_spawnp(), any function affecting the attributes object (including destruction) shall not affect any process that has been spawned in this way.
posix_spawnattr_destroy() function will render the posix_spawnattr_t unusable. Before the object can be reused, it must be initialized with posix_spawnattr_init(), which includes calling posix_spawnattr_destroy() on an already destroyed object. POSIX specifies that results are undefined when using a posix_spawnattr_t object after it has been destroyed. If you attempt to reference a destroyed attributes object, all of the get() and set() operations, as well as posix_spawn(), will return EINVAL.
Upon successful completion, posix_spawnattr_destroy( )() will return zero; otherwise, an error number is returned to indicate the error (errno).
- The value specified by attrp is invalid.
