PTHREAD_EQUAL(3)					     Linux Programmer's Manual						  PTHREAD_EQUAL(3)

NAME
pthread_equal - compare thread IDs SYNOPSIS
#include <pthread.h> int pthread_equal(pthread_t t1, pthread_t t2); Compile and link with -pthread. DESCRIPTION
The pthread_equal() function compares two thread identifiers. RETURN VALUE
If the two thread IDs are equal, pthread_equal() returns a nonzero value; otherwise, it returns 0. ERRORS
This function always succeeds. ATTRIBUTES
For an explanation of the terms used in this section, see attributes(7). +----------------+---------------+---------+ |Interface | Attribute | Value | +----------------+---------------+---------+ |pthread_equal() | Thread safety | MT-Safe | +----------------+---------------+---------+ CONFORMING TO
POSIX.1-2001, POSIX.1-2008. NOTES
The pthread_equal() function is necessary because thread IDs should be considered opaque: there is no portable way for applications to directly compare two pthread_t values. SEE ALSO
