posix_spawnattr_destroy()

Destroy a spawn attributes object

Synopsis:

#include <spawn.h>

int posix_spawnattr_destroy(posix_spawnattr_t *attrp);

Since:

BlackBerry 10.0.0

Arguments:

attrp
A pointer to the spawn attributes object that you want to destroy.

Library:

libc

Description:

The posix_spawnattr_destroy() function destroys a spawn attributes object. You can reinitialize a destroyed attrp attributes object by using posix_spawnattr_init(); the results of referencing the object after you've destroyed it are undefined.

A spawn attributes object is an opaque object of type posix_spawnattr_t (defined in <spawn.h>), and it specifies the inheritance of process attributes across a spawn operation.

The resulting spawn attributes object (possibly modified by setting individual attribute values), is used to modify the behavior of posix_spawn() or posix_spawnp(). Changes that you make to the spawn attributes object don't affect any processes that you've already spawned.

The posix_spawnattr_destroy() function renders the posix_spawnattr_t unusable. Before you can reuse the object, you must initialize it with posix_spawnattr_init(). POSIX specifies that results are undefined if you use a posix_spawnattr_t object after it has been destroyed, including calling posix_spawnattr_destroy() on an already destroyed object. If you attempt to reference a destroyed attributes object, all of the posix_spawnattr_get*() and posix_spawnattr_set*() operations, as well as posix_spawn(), return EINVAL.

Returns:

EOK
Success.
EINVAL
The value specified by attrp is invalid.

Classification:

POSIX 1003.1 SPN
