As of ISO/IEC 9899:2011 (``ISO C11''), the C standard includes an API for writing multithreaded applications. Since POSIX.1 already includes a threading API that is used by virtually any multithreaded application, the interface provided by the C standard can be considered superflu- ous. In this implementation, the threading interface is therefore implemented as a light-weight layer on top of existing interfaces. The func- tions to which these routines are mapped, are listed in the following table. Please refer to the documentation of the POSIX equivalent func- tions for more information.

The thrd_exit() function returns an integer value to the thread calling thrd_join(), whereas the pthread_exit() function uses a pointer. The mutex created by mtx_init() can be of type mtx_plain or mtx_timed to distinguish between a mutex that supports mtx_timedlock(). This type can be or'd with mtx_recursive to create a mutex that allows recursive acquisition. These properties are normally set using pthread_mutex_init()'s attr parameter. RETURN VALUES
If successful, the cnd_broadcast(), cnd_init(), cnd_signal(), cnd_timedwait(), cnd_wait(), mtx_init(), mtx_lock(), mtx_timedlock(), mtx_trylock(), mtx_unlock(), thrd_create(), thrd_detach(), thrd_equal(), thrd_join(), thrd_sleep(), tss_create() and tss_set() functions return thrd_success. Otherwise an error code will be returned to indicate the error. The thrd_current() function returns the thread ID of the calling thread. The tss_get() function returns the thread-specific data value associated with the given key. If no thread-specific data value is associated with key, then the value NULL is returned. ERRORS
The cnd_init() and thrd_create() functions will fail if: thrd_nomem The system has insufficient memory. The cnd_timedwait() and mtx_timedlock() functions will fail if: thrd_timedout The system time has reached or exceeded the time specified in ts before the operation could be completed. The mtx_trylock() function will fail if: thrd_busy The mutex is already locked. In all other cases, these functions may fail by returning general error code thrd_error. SEE ALSO
