Condition variable to be destroyed.
This routine destroys the condition variable specified by
cond. This effectively uninitializes the condition variable.
Call this routine when a condition variable will no
longer be referenced. Destroying a condition variable
allows DECthreads to reclaim internal memory associated
with the condition variable.
It is safe to destroy an initialized condition variable
upon which no threads are currently blocked. Attempting to
destroy a condition variable upon which other threads are
blocked results in unpredictable behavior.
The results of this routine are unpredictable, if the condition
variable specified in cond does not exist or is not
If an error condition occurs, this routine returns an
integer value indicating the type of error. Possible
return values are as follows: Successful completion. The
value specified by cond is invalid. The object being referenced
by cond is being referenced by another thread that
is currently executing pthread_cond_wait(3) or
pthread_cond_timedwait(3) on the condition variable specified
