     two values:

         PTHREAD_PROCESS_SHARED    Any thread of any process that has access
                                   to the memory where the read/write lock re-
                                   sides can manipulate the lock.

         PTHREAD_PROCESS_PRIVATE   Only threads created within the same pro-
                                   cess as the thread that initialized the
                                   read/write lock can manipulate the lock.
                                   This is the default value.
