pthread_getattr_default_np,  pthread_setattr_default_np,  -  get or set
       default thread-creation attributes

       #define _GNU_SOURCE             /* See feature_test_macros(7) */
       #include <pthread.h>

       int pthread_getattr_default_np(pthread_attr_t *attr);
       int pthread_setattr_default_np(pthread_attr_t *attr);

       Compile and link with -pthread.

       The pthread_setattr_default_np() function sets the  default  attributes
       used  for  creation  of  a new thread--that is, the attributes that are
       used when pthread_create(3) is called with a second  argument  that  is
       NULL.   The default attributes are set using the attributes supplied in
       *attr, a previously initialized thread  attributes  object.   Note  the
       following details about the supplied attributes object:

       *  The attribute settings in the object must be valid.

       *  The stack address attribute must not be set in the object.

       *  Setting  the  stack  size  attribute to zero means leave the default
          stack size unchanged.

       The pthread_getattr_default_np() function initializes  the  thread  at-
       tributes object referred to by attr so that it contains the default at-
       tributes used for thread creation.

       EINVAL (pthread_setattr_default_np()) One of the attribute settings  in
              attr is invalid, or the stack address attribute is set in attr.

       ENOMEM (pthread_setattr_default_np()) Insufficient memory.

       These functions are available in glibc since version 2.18.

       For  an  explanation  of  the  terms  used  in  this  section,  see at-

       |Interface                      | Attribute     | Value   |
       |pthread_getattr_default_np(),  | Thread safety | MT-Safe |
       |pthread_setattr_default_np()   |               |         |
       These  functions are nonstandard GNU extensions; hence the suffix "_np"
       (nonportable) in their names.

       The program below uses pthread_getattr_default_np() to  fetch  the  de-
       fault  thread-creation  attributes  and  then displays various settings
       from the returned thread attributes object.  When running the  program,
       we see the following output:

           $ ./a.out
           Stack size:          8388608
           Guard size:          4096

           Scheduling priority: 0
