LIBRARY

SYNOPSIS

void pthread_testcancel(void);  

STANDARDS

PARAMETERS

None  

DESCRIPTION

This routine requests delivery of a pending cancelation request to the calling thread. Thus, calling this routine creates a cancelation point within the calling thread.

The cancelation request is delivered only if a request is pending for the calling thread and the calling thread's cancelability state is enabled. (A thread disables delivery of cancelation requests to itself by calling pthread_setcancelstate(3).)

When called within very long loops, this routine ensures that a pending cancelation request is noticed by the calling thread within a reasonable amount of time.

 

RETURN VALUES
