NAME
libpthread - POSIX threads library SYNOPSIS
cc -mt [ flag... ] file... -lpthread [ -lrt library... ] DESCRIPTION
Historically, functions in this library provided POSIX threading support. See standards(5). This functionality now resides in libc(3LIB). This library is maintained to provide backward compatibility for both runtime and compilation environments. The shared object is imple- mented as a filter on libc.so.1. New application development needs to specify -lpthread only to obtain POSIX semantics for fork(2) that assumes the behavior of fork1(2) rather than the default behavior that forks all threads. INTERFACES
The shared object libpthread.so.1 provides the public interfaces defined below. See intro(3) for additional information on shared object interfaces. __pthread_cleanup_pop __pthread_cleanup_push pthread_attr_destroy pthread_attr_getdetachstate pthread_attr_getguardsize pthread_attr_getinheritsched pthread_attr_getschedparam pthread_attr_getschedpolicy pthread_attr_getscope pthread_attr_getstackaddr pthread_attr_getstacksize pthread_attr_init pthread_attr_setdetachstate pthread_attr_setguardsize pthread_attr_setinheritsched pthread_attr_setschedparam pthread_attr_setschedpolicy pthread_attr_setscope pthread_attr_setstackaddr pthread_attr_setstacksize pthread_cancel pthread_cond_broadcast pthread_cond_destroy pthread_cond_init pthread_cond_reltimedwait_np pthread_cond_signal pthread_cond_timedwait pthread_cond_wait pthread_condattr_destroy pthread_condattr_getpshared pthread_condattr_init pthread_condattr_setpshared pthread_create pthread_detach pthread_equal pthread_exit pthread_getconcurrency pthread_getschedparam pthread_getspecific pthread_join pthread_key_create pthread_key_delete pthread_kill pthread_mutex_consistent_np pthread_mutex_destroy pthread_mutex_getprioceiling pthread_mutex_init pthread_mutex_lock pthread_mutex_setprioceiling pthread_mutex_trylock pthread_mutex_unlock pthread_mutexattr_destroy pthread_mutexattr_getprioceiling pthread_mutexattr_getprotocol pthread_mutexattr_getpshared pthread_mutexattr_getrobust_np pthread_mutexattr_gettype pthread_mutexattr_init pthread_mutexattr_setprioceiling pthread_mutexattr_setprotocol pthread_mutexattr_setpshared pthread_mutexattr_setrobust_np pthread_mutexattr_settype pthread_once pthread_rwlock_destroy pthread_rwlock_init pthread_rwlock_rdlock pthread_rwlock_tryrdlock pthread_rwlock_trywrlock pthread_rwlock_unlock pthread_rwlock_wrlock pthread_rwlockattr_destroy pthread_rwlockattr_getpshared pthread_rwlockattr_init pthread_rwlockattr_setpshared pthread_self pthread_setcancelstate pthread_setcanceltype pthread_setconcurrency pthread_setschedparam pthread_setspecific pthread_sigmask pthread_testcancel FILES
