PTHREAD_ONCE(3)            BSD Programmer's Manual             PTHREAD_ONCE(3)

NAME

     pthread_once - dynamic package initialization

SYNOPSIS

     #include <pthread.h>

     pthread_once_t once_control = PTHREAD_ONCE_INIT;

     int
     pthread_once(pthread_once_t *once_control, void (*init_routine)(void));

DESCRIPTION

     The first call to pthread_once() by any thread in a process, with a given
     once_control, will call the init_routine() with no arguments. Subsequent
     calls to pthread_once() with the same once_control will not call the
     init_routine(). On return from pthread_once(), it is guaranteed that
     init_routine() has completed. The once_control parameter is used to
     determine whether the associated initialization routine has been called.

     The function pthread_once() is not a cancellation point. However, if
     init_routine() is a cancellation point and is cancelled, the effect on
     once_control is as if pthread_once() was never called.

     The constant PTHREAD_ONCE_INIT is defined in the header file <pthread.h>.

     The behavior of pthread_once() is undefined if once_control has automatic
     storage duration or is not initialized by PTHREAD_ONCE_INIT.

RETURN VALUES

     If successful, the pthread_once() function will return zero. Otherwise an
     error number will be returned to indicate the error.

ERRORS

     None.

STANDARDS

     pthread_once() conforms to ISO/IEC 9945-1:1996 ("POSIX").
