Initialize the spawn attributes object
#include <posix_spawnattr.h> int posix_spawnattr_init(posix_spawnattr_t *attrp);
You can reinitialize a destroyed attrp attributes object by using posix_spawnattr_init(). The results of 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 initializes a spawn attributes object attrp 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 attrp 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 doesn't define comparison or assignment operators for the type posix_spawnattr_t.
Each implementation describes 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 posix_spawn() or posix_spawnp(), any function affecting the attributes object (including destruction) doesn't affect any process that has been spawned in this way.
POSIX indicates that the results are undefined when re-initializing an already initialized posix_spawnattr_t object. The QNX implementation defines the behavior as identical to the case when the previous object is destroyed and then re-initialized, meaning that it's safe to re-initialize an already initialized posix_spawnattr_t object; however, it doesn't support the re-initialization of a posix_spawnattr_t object without an intervening destruction of the object. Repeated calls to posix_spawnattr_init() with the same posix_spawnattr_t object could result in a memory leak.
The 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.
Upon successful completion, posix_spawnattr_init() will return zero; otherwise, an error number is returned to indicate the error (errno is set).
