The posix_trace_attr_destroy() function shall destroy an initialized
trace attributes object. A destroyed attr attributes object can be
reinitialized using posix_trace_attr_init(); the results of otherwise
referencing the object after it has been destroyed are undefined.
The posix_trace_attr_init() function shall initialize a trace attributes
object attr with the default value for all of the individual attributes
used by a given implementation. The read-only generation-version and
clock-resolution attributes of the newly initialized trace attributes
object shall be set to their appropriate values (see Trace Stream
Results are undefined if posix_trace_attr_init() is called specifying an
already initialized attr attributes object.
Implementations may add extensions to the trace attributes object structure as
permitted in the Base Definitions volume of
IEEE Std 1003.1-2001, Chapter 2, Conformance.
The resulting attributes object (possibly modified by setting individual
attributes values), when used by posix_trace_create(), defines the
attributes of the trace stream created. A single attributes object can be used
in multiple calls to posix_trace_create(). After one or more trace
streams have been created using an attributes object, any function affecting
that attributes object, including destruction, shall not affect any trace
stream previously created. An initialized attributes object also serves to
receive the attributes of an existing trace stream or trace log when calling
the posix_trace_get_attr() function.
