Sets the value of the stacksize attribute of a thread attributes object.
Threads Library (libpthreads.a)
int pthread_attr_setstacksize (attr, stacksize) pthread_attr_t *attr; size_t stacksize;
The pthread_attr_setstacksize subroutine sets the value of the stacksize attribute of the thread attributes object attr. This attribute specifies the minimum stack size, in bytes, of a thread created with this attributes object.
The allocated stack size is always a multiple of 8K bytes, greater or equal to the required minimum stack size of 56K bytes (PTHREAD_STACK_MIN). The following formula is used to calculate the allocated stack size: if the required stack size is lower than 56K bytes, the allocated stack size is 56K bytes; otherwise, if the required stack size belongs to the range from (56 + (n - 1) * 16) K bytes to (56 + n * 16) K bytes, the allocated stack size is (56 + n * 16) K bytes.
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.
|attr||Specifies the thread attributes object.|
|stacksize||Specifies the minimum stack size, in bytes, to set. The default stack size is PTHREAD_STACK_MIN. The minimum stack size should be greater or equal than this value.|
Upon successful completion, 0 is returned. Otherwise, an error code is returned.
The pthread_attr_setstacksize subroutine is unsuccessful if the following is true:
|EINVAL||The attr parameter is not valid, or the value of the stacksize parameter exceeds a system imposed limit.|
|ENOSYS||The stack size POSIX option is not implemented.|
This subroutine is part of the Base Operating System (BOS) Runtime.
