Function Documentation

int jack_acquire_real_time_scheduling ( jack_native_thread_t  thread,
int  priority 
)

Attempt to enable realtime scheduling for a thread. On some systems that may require special privileges.

Parameters:
threadPOSIX thread ID.
priorityrequested thread priority.
Returns:
0, if successful; EPERM, if the calling process lacks required realtime privileges; otherwise some other error number.
int jack_client_create_thread ( jack_client_t client,
jack_native_thread_t thread,
int  priority,
int  realtime,
void *(*)(void *)  start_routine,
void *  arg 
)

Create a thread for JACK or one of its clients. The thread is created executing start_routine with arg as its sole argument.

Parameters:
clientthe JACK client for whom the thread is being created. May be NULL if the client is being created within the JACK server.
threadplace to return POSIX thread ID.
prioritythread priority, if realtime.
realtimetrue for the thread to use realtime scheduling. On some systems that may require special privileges.
start_routinefunction the thread calls when it starts.
argparameter passed to the start_routine.
Returns:
0, if successful; otherwise some error number.
int jack_client_max_real_time_priority ( jack_client_t )
Returns:
if JACK is running with realtime scheduling, this returns the maximum priority that a JACK client thread should use if the thread is subject to realtime scheduling. Otherwise returns -1.
int jack_client_real_time_priority ( jack_client_t )
Returns:
if JACK is running with realtime scheduling, this returns the priority that any JACK-created client threads will run at. Otherwise returns -1.
int jack_drop_real_time_scheduling ( jack_native_thread_t  thread)

Drop realtime scheduling for a thread.

Parameters:
threadPOSIX thread ID.
Returns:
0, if successful; otherwise an error number.
void jack_set_thread_creator ( jack_thread_creator_t  creator)

This function can be used in very very specialized cases where it is necessary that client threads created by JACK are created by something other than pthread_create(). After it is used, any threads that JACK needs for the client will will be created by calling the function passed to this function.

No normal application/client should consider calling this. The specific case for which it was created involves running win32/x86 plugins under Wine on Linux, where it is necessary that all threads that might call win32 functions are known to Wine.

Parameters:
creatora function that creates a new thread
