CK_RWCOHORT_INIT(3)      BSD Library Functions Manual      CK_RWCOHORT_INIT(3)

NAME
     CK_RWCOHORT_INIT -- initialize instance of a cohort-based reader-writer
     lock type

LIBRARY
     Concurrency Kit (libck, -lck)

SYNOPSIS
     #include <ck_rwcohort.h>

     CK_RWCOHORT_NEUTRAL_INIT(COHORT_NAME cohort_name, LOCK *lock);

     CK_RWCOHORT_RP_INIT(COHORT_NAME cohort_name, LOCK *lock,
         unsigned int wait_limit);

     CK_RWCOHORT_WP_INIT(COHORT_NAME cohort_name, LOCK *lock,
         unsigned int wait_limit);

DESCRIPTION
     This macro initializes the lock instance pointed to by the lock argument.
     Until a lock instance is initialized using the CK_RWCOHORT_INIT macro,
     any operations involving it will have undefined behavior.  Note that the
     wait_limit argument should only be used with reader-preference or writer-
     preference locks.  For neutral locks, this argument should be excluded.
     If you are unsure of a value to use for the wait_limit argument, you
     should use CK_RWCOHORT_STRATEGY_DEFAULT_LOCAL_WAIT_LIMIT.
