MirOS Manual: pthread_yield(3)

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

NAME

     pthread_yield - yield control of the current thread

SYNOPSIS

     #include <pthread.h>

     void
     pthread_yield(void);

DESCRIPTION

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

SEE ALSO

     pthreads(3)

STANDARDS

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