NAME

pthread_self - Obtains the identifier of the calling thread.  

LIBRARY

DECthreads POSIX 1003.1c Library (libpthread.so)  

SYNOPSIS

#include <pthread.h>

pthread_t pthread_self(void);  

STANDARDS

Interfaces documented on this reference page conform to industry standards as follows:

IEEE Std 1003.1c-1995, POSIX System Application Program Interface  

PARAMETERS

None  

DESCRIPTION

This routine returns the address of the calling thread's own thread identifier. For example, you can use this thread object to obtain the calling thread's own sequence number. To do so, pass the return value from this routine in a call to the pthread_getsequence_np(3) routine, as follows:


   unsigned long     this_thread_nbr;
    .
    .
    .
   this_thread_nbr = pthread_getsequence_np( pthread_self( ) );
    .
    .
    .

The return value from the pthread_self(3) routine becomes meaningless after the calling thread is destroyed.

 

RETURN VALUES

Returns the address of the calling thread's own thread object.  

ERRORS

None
