AIX Version 4.3 Base Operating System and Extensions Technical Reference, Volume 1



Initializes a static condition variable with default attributes.


Threads Library (libpthreads.a)


#include <pthread.h>
static pthread_cond_t cond = PTHREAD_COND_INITIALIZER;


The PTHREAD_COND_INITIALIZER macro initializes the static condition variable cond, setting its attributes to default values. This macro should only be used for static condition variables, since no error checking is performed.

Note: The pthread.h header file must be the first included file of each source file using the threads library. Otherwise, the -D_THREAD_SAFE compilation flag should be used, or the cc_r compiler used. In this case, the flag is automatically set.

Implementation Specifics

This macro is part of the Base Operating System (BOS) Runtime.
