PTHREAD_ATTR_SETDETACHSTATE(BSD Programmer's ManPTHREAD_ATTR_SETDETACHSTATE(3)

NAME

     pthread_attr_setdetachstate, pthread_attr_getdetachstate - set and get
     detachstate attribute

SYNOPSIS

     #include <pthread.h>

     int
     pthread_attr_setdetachstate(pthread_attr_t *attr, int detachstate);

     int
     pthread_attr_getdetachstate(pthread_attr_t *attr, int *detachstate);

DESCRIPTION

     The detachstate attribute controls whether the thread is created in a de-
     tached state. If the thread is created detached, then use of the ID of
     the newly created thread by the pthread_detach(3) or pthread_join(3)
     function is an error.

     The pthread_attr_setdetachstate() and pthread_attr_getdetachstate() func-
     tions, respectively, set and get the detachstate attribute in the attr
     object.

     The detachstate can be set to either PTHREAD_CREATE_DETACHED or
     PTHREAD_CREATE_JOINABLE. A value of PTHREAD_CREATE_DETACHED causes all
     threads created with attr to be in the detached state, whereas using a
     value of PTHREAD_CREATE_JOINABLE causes all threads created with attr to
     be in the joinable state. The default value of the detachstate attribute
     is PTHREAD_CREATE_JOINABLE.

RETURN VALUES

     Upon successful completion, pthread_attr_setdetachstate() and
     pthread_attr_getdetachstate() return a value of 0. Otherwise, an error
     number is returned to indicate the error.

     The pthread_attr_getdetachstate() function stores the value of the
     detachstate attribute in detachstate if successful.

ERRORS

     The pthread_attr_setdetachstate() function will fail if:

     [EINVAL]      The value of detachstate was not valid.

     These functions will not return an error code of [EINTR].
