tis_getspecific - Obtains the data associated with the specified thread-specific data key.
Standard C Library (libc.so, libc.a)
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.
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.
No errors are returned. This routine returns the data value associated with the specified thread-specific data key key. If no data value is associated with key, or if key is not defined, then a NULL value is returned.
Functions: tis_key_create(3), tis_key_delete(3), tis_setspecific(3)
