pthread_set_name_np - set the name of a thread
pthread_set_name_np(pthread_t thread, char *name);
The pthread_set_name_np() function associates name with
thread. This can
be useful for debugging, as the name is displayed in the
thread status as
displayed when the process receives the SIGINFO signal.
The string pointed to by name is copied, and so need not be
valid for the
life of the thread.
The pthread_set_name_np() function is non-portable and may
not be supported
with the above semantics on other POSIX systems.
