NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

     pthread_detach -- detach a thread

LIBRARY    [Toc]    [Back]

     Reentrant C Library (libc_r, -lc_r)

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

     #include <pthread.h>

     pthread_detach(pthread_t thread);

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

     The pthread_detach() function is used to indicate to the implementation
     that storage for the thread thread can be reclaimed when the thread terminates.
  If thread has not terminated, pthread_detach() will not cause
     it to terminate.  The effect of multiple pthread_detach() calls on the
     same target thread is unspecified.

RETURN VALUES    [Toc]    [Back]

     If successful,  the pthread_detach() function will return zero.  Otherwise
 an error number will be returned to indicate the error.  Note that
     the function does not change the value of errno as it did for some drafts
     of the standard.  These early drafts also passed a pointer to pthread_t
     as the argument.  Beware!

ERRORS    [Toc]    [Back]

     The pthread_detach() function will fail if:

     [EINVAL]		The implementation has detected that the value specified
 by thread does not refer to a joinable thread.

     [ESRCH]		No thread could be found corresponding to that specified
 by the given thread ID, thread.

SEE ALSO    [Toc]    [Back]


STANDARDS    [Toc]    [Back]

     The pthread_detach() function conforms to ISO/IEC 9945-1:1996

FreeBSD 5.2.1			 April 4, 1996			 FreeBSD 5.2.1
