NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

     pthread_yield - yield control of the current thread

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

     #include <pthread.h>


DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

     The pthread_yield() function  resets  the  accumulated  time
slice of the
     current  thread  and then enters the thread scheduler, which
resumes execution
 of the next thread ready to run.  If no other thread is
ready to
     run, control returns to the current thread.

SEE ALSO    [Toc]    [Back]


STANDARDS    [Toc]    [Back]

     pthread_yield()  is a non-portable (but quite common) extension to IEEE
     Std 1003.1-2001 (``POSIX'').

OpenBSD     3.6                        January      15,      2004
