PARAMETERS

Identifies a value returned by a call to tis_key_create(3). This routine returns the data value associated with the thread-specific data key.  

DESCRIPTION

This routine returns the value currently bound to the specified thread-specific data key.

This routine can be called from a data destructor function.

When threads are present, the data and keys are thread specific; they enable a library to maintain context on a per-thread basis.
