       pthread_attr_setname_np	- Change the object name attribute in a thread
       attributes object

       DECthreads POSIX 1003.1c Library (

       Address of the thread attributes object whose object name attribute  is
       to  be  changed.	  Object name value to copy into the thread attributes
       object's object name attribute.	Reserved for  future  use.  The	 value
       must be zero (0).

       This routine changes the object name attribute in the thread attributes
       object specified by attr to the value specified by name. A  new	thread
       created	using  the  thread  attributes	object is initialized with the
       object name that was set in that attributes object.

       The object name is a C language string and provides an identifier  that
       is  meaningful  to  a person debugging a DECthreads-based multithreaded
       application.  The maximum number of characters in the  object  name  is

       This  routine  contrasts	 with  pthread_setname_np,  which  changes the
       object name in the thread object for an existing thread.

       If an error condition occurs, this routine  returns  an	integer	 value
       indicating  the	type  of error. Possible return values are as follows:
       Successful completion.  The value specified by attr is invalid, or  the
       length in characters of name exceeds 31.	 Insufficient memory exists to
       create a copy of the object name string.
