NAME

LIBRARY

Standard C Library (libc.so, libc.a)  

SYNOPSIS

#include <tis.h>

void tis_testcancel(void);  

STANDARDS

PARAMETERS

None  

DESCRIPTION

This routine requests delivery of a pending cancelation request to the calling thread. Thus, this routine creates a cancelation point in 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 tis_setcancelstate(3).)

This routine, when called within very long loops, ensures that a pending cancelation request is noticed within a reasonable amount of time.
