pthread_attr_setstacksize

SYNOPSIS
       #include <pthread.h>

       int pthread_attr_setstacksize(pthread_attr_t *attr, size_t stacksize);
       int pthread_attr_getstacksize(const pthread_attr_t *attr, size_t *stacksize);

       Compile and link with -pthread.

DESCRIPTION
       The pthread_attr_setstacksize() function sets the stack size  attribute
       of the thread attributes object referred to by attr to the value speci-
       fied in stacksize.

       The stack size attribute determines the minimum size  (in  bytes)  that
       will  be  allocated  for  threads  created  using the thread attributes
       object attr.

       The  pthread_attr_getstacksize()  function  returns  the   stack   size
       attribute  of  the  thread attributes object referred to by attr in the
       buffer pointed to by stacksize.

RETURN VALUE
       On success, these functions return 0; on error, they return  a  nonzero
       error number.

ERRORS
       pthread_attr_setstacksize() can fail with the following error:

       EINVAL The stack size is less than PTHREAD_STACK_MIN (16384) bytes.

       On  some  systems,  pthread_attr_setstacksize() can fail with the error
       EINVAL if stacksize is not a multiple of the system page size.

VERSIONS
       These functions are provided by glibc since version 2.1.

       POSIX.1-2001, POSIX.1-2008.

NOTES
       For details on the default stack size of new threads, see  pthread_cre-
       ate(3).

       A  thread's  stack  size is fixed at the time of thread creation.  Only
