Upon successful completion, returns zero. Otherwise, an error number is returned to indicate the error (the variable is not set). ERRORS
If any of the following occur, the function returns the corresponding error number: [EINVAL] sig is an invalid or unsupported signal number. [ESRCH] No thread could be found corresponding to thread. AUTHOR

NAME
pthread_kill - send a signal to a thread SYNOPSIS
#include <signal.h> int pthread_kill(pthread_t thread, int sig); Compile and link with -pthread. DESCRIPTION
The pthread_kill() function sends the signal sig to thread, another thread in the same process as the caller. The signal is asynchronously directed to thread. If sig is 0, then no signal is sent, but error checking is still performed; this can be used to check for the existence of a thread ID. RETURN VALUE
On success, pthread_kill() returns 0; on error, it returns an error number, and no signal is sent. ERRORS
ESRCH No thread with the ID thread could be found. EINVAL An invalid signal was specified. CONFORMING TO
POSIX.1-2001. NOTES
Signal dispositions are process-wide: if a signal handler is installed, the handler will be invoked in the thread thread, but if the dispo- sition of the signal is "stop", "continue", or "terminate", this action will affect the whole process. SEE ALSO
