pthread_kill - send a signal to a specified thread
#include <pthread.h> #include <signal.h> int pthread_kill(pthread_t thread, int sig);
The pthread_kill() function sends a signal, specified by sig, to a thread, specified by thread. If sig is 0, error checking is performed, but no signal is actually sent.
If successful, pthread_kill() returns 0. Otherwise, an error number is returned.
pthread_kill() will fail if: [ESRCH] thread is an invalid thread ID. [EINVAL] sig is an invalid or unsupported signal number.
