_LWP_DETACH(2)			     BSD System Calls Manual			   _LWP_DETACH(2)

NAME
     _lwp_detach -- detach a light-weight process

LIBRARY
     Standard C Library (libc, -lc)

SYNOPSIS
     #include <lwp.h>

     int
     _lwp_detach(lwpid_t lwp);

DESCRIPTION
     _lwp_detach() causes a light-weight process to become detached, having the same effect as if
     the LWP was created with the LWP_DETACHED flag.

     The resources associated with a detached LWP will be automatically reclaimed by the system
     when the LWP exits.  Conversely, an attached LWP's resources will not be reclaimed until its
     status is reported to another LWP via _lwp_wait(2).

RETURN VALUES
     A 0 value indicates that the call succeeded.  A -1 return value indicates an error occurred
     and errno is set to indicate the reason.

ERRORS
     [EINVAL]  The LWP is already detached.

     [ESRCH]   No LWP can be found in the current process corresponding to that specified by lwp.

SEE ALSO
     _lwp_create(2), _lwp_wait(2)

HISTORY
     The _lwp_detach() system call first appeared in NetBSD 5.0.
