_LWP_KILL(2)			     BSD System Calls Manual			     _LWP_KILL(2)

NAME
     _lwp_kill -- send a signal to a light-weight process

LIBRARY
     Standard C Library (libc, -lc)

SYNOPSIS
     #include <lwp.h>

     int
     _lwp_kill(lwpid_t lwp, int sig);

DESCRIPTION
     _lwp_kill() sends the signal specified by sig to the light-weight process specified by lwp.
     If the sig argument is given as 0 (zero), _lwp_kill will test for the existence of the tar-
     get LWP, but will take no further action.

     Job control signals and uncatchable signals can not be directed to a specific LWP: if posted
     with _lwp_kill, they will affect all LWPs in the process.

     Signals will be posted successfully to suspended LWPs, but will not be handled further until
     the LWP has been continued.

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]  sig is not a valid signal number.

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

SEE ALSO
     _lwp_continue(2), _lwp_suspend(2), kill(2), sigaction(2), signal(7)

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