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

NAME
pthread_yield - yield the processor SYNOPSIS
#define _GNU_SOURCE /* See feature_test_macros(7) */ #include <pthread.h> int pthread_yield(void); Compile and link with -pthread. DESCRIPTION
pthread_yield() causes the calling thread to relinquish the CPU. The thread is placed at the end of the run queue for its static priority and another thread is scheduled to run. For further details, see sched_yield(2) RETURN VALUE
On success, pthread_yield() returns 0; on error, it returns an error number. ERRORS
On Linux, this call always succeeds (but portable and future-proof applications should nevertheless handle a possible error return). CONFORMING TO
This call is nonstandard, but present on several other systems. Use the standardized sched_yield(2) instead. NOTES
On Linux, this function is implemented as a call to sched_yield(2). SEE ALSO
sched_setscheduler(2), sched_yield(2), pthreads(7) COLOPHON
