PROLOG
This manual page is part of the POSIX Programmer's Manual. The Linux implementation of this interface may differ (consult the correspond- ing Linux manual page for details of Linux behavior), or the interface may not be implemented on Linux. NAME
pthread_self - get the calling thread ID SYNOPSIS
#include <pthread.h> pthread_t pthread_self(void); DESCRIPTION
The pthread_self() function shall return the thread ID of the calling thread. RETURN VALUE
Refer to the DESCRIPTION. ERRORS
No errors are defined. The pthread_self() function shall not return an error code of [EINTR]. The following sections are informative. EXAMPLES
None. APPLICATION USAGE
None. RATIONALE
The pthread_self() function provides a capability similar to the getpid() function for processes and the rationale is the same: the cre- ation call does not provide the thread ID to the created thread. FUTURE DIRECTIONS
None. SEE ALSO

pthread_equal - compare thread IDs SYNOPSIS
#include <pthread.h> int pthread_equal(pthread_t t1, pthread_t t2); DESCRIPTION
This function shall compare the thread IDs t1 and t2. RETURN VALUE
The pthread_equal() function shall return a non-zero value if t1 and t2 are equal; otherwise, zero shall be returned. If either t1 or t2 are not valid thread IDs, the behavior is undefined. ERRORS
No errors are defined. The pthread_equal() function shall not return an error code of [EINTR]. The following sections are informative. EXAMPLES
None. APPLICATION USAGE
None. RATIONALE
Implementations may choose to define a thread ID as a structure. This allows additional flexibility and robustness over using an int. For example, a thread ID could include a sequence number that allows detection of "dangling IDs" (copies of a thread ID that has been detached). Since the C language does not support comparison on structure types, the pthread_equal() function is provided to compare thread IDs. FUTURE DIRECTIONS
None. SEE ALSO
