       This  manual  page is part of the POSIX Programmer's Manual.  The Linux
       implementation of this interface may differ (consult the	 corresponding
       Linux  manual page for details of Linux behavior), or the interface may
       not be implemented on Linux.

       pthread_rwlock_trywrlock, pthread_rwlock_wrlock	—  lock	 a  read-write
       lock object for writing

       #include <pthread.h>

       int pthread_rwlock_trywrlock(pthread_rwlock_t *rwlock);
       int pthread_rwlock_wrlock(pthread_rwlock_t *rwlock);

       The  pthread_rwlock_trywrlock()	function shall apply a write lock like
       the pthread_rwlock_wrlock() function, with the exception that the func‐
       tion  shall  fail  if any thread currently holds rwlock (for reading or

       The pthread_rwlock_wrlock() function shall apply a write	 lock  to  the
       read-write  lock referenced by rwlock.  The calling thread acquires the
       write lock if no other thread (reader or writer) holds  the  read-write
       lock  rwlock.   Otherwise,  the thread shall block until it can acquire
       the lock. The calling thread may deadlock if at the time	 the  call  is
       made it holds the read-write lock (whether a read or write lock).

       Implementations	may favor writers over readers to avoid writer starva‐

       Results are undefined if any of these  functions	 are  called  with  an
       uninitialized read-write lock.

       If  a signal is delivered to a thread waiting for a read-write lock for
       writing, upon return from the signal handler the thread resumes waiting
       for the read-write lock for writing as if it was not interrupted.

       The  pthread_rwlock_trywrlock()	function shall return zero if the lock
       for writing on the read-write  lock  object  referenced	by  rwlock  is
       acquired.  Otherwise, an error number shall be returned to indicate the

       If successful, the pthread_rwlock_wrlock() function shall return	 zero;
       otherwise, an error number shall be returned to indicate the error.

       The pthread_rwlock_trywrlock() function shall fail if:

       EBUSY  The read-write lock could not be acquired for writing because it
	      was already locked for reading or writing.

       The pthread_rwlock_wrlock() function may fail if:

	      A deadlock condition was detected or the current thread  already
	      owns the read-write lock for writing or reading.

       These functions shall not return an error code of [EINTR].

       The following sections are informative.


       Applications  using  these  functions may be subject to priority inver‐
       sion, as discussed in the Base Definitions volume of POSIX.1‐2008, Sec‐
       tion 3.287, Priority Inversion.

       If  an  implementation  detects	that the value specified by the rwlock
       argument to pthread_rwlock_trywrlock() or pthread_rwlock_wrlock()  does
       not  refer  to an initialized read-write lock object, it is recommended
       that the function should fail and report an [EINVAL] error.
