#include <sched.h> int sched_get_priority_max(int policy); int sched_get_priority_min(int policy);
The sched_get_priority_max() and sched_get_priority_min() functions shall return the appropriate maximum or minimum, respectively, for the scheduling policy specified by policy.
The value of policy shall be one of the scheduling policy values defined in <sched.h>.
If successful, the sched_get_priority_max() and sched_get_priority_min() functions shall return the appropriate maximum or minimum values, respectively. If unsuccessful, they shall return a value of -1 and set errno to indicate the error.
The sched_get_priority_max() and sched_get_priority_min() functions shall fail if:
The value of the policy parameter does not represent a defined scheduling policy.
The following sections are informative.
