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

NAME
       pthread_equal - compare thread IDs

SYNOPSIS
       #include <pthread.h>

       int pthread_equal(pthread_t t1, pthread_t t2);

       Compile and link with -pthread.

DESCRIPTION
       The pthread_equal() function compares two thread identifiers.

RETURN VALUE
       If  the	two  thread IDs are equal, pthread_equal() returns a nonzero value; otherwise, it
       returns 0.

ERRORS
       This function always succeeds.

CONFORMING TO
       POSIX.1-2001.

NOTES
       The pthread_equal() function is necessary because thread IDs should be considered  opaque:
       there is no portable way for applications to directly compare two pthread_t values.

SEE ALSO
       pthread_create(3), pthread_self(3), pthreads(7)
