PTHREAD_CURCPU_NP(3)		   BSD Library Functions Manual 	     PTHREAD_CURCPU_NP(3)

NAME
     pthread_curcpu_np -- get current CPU identifier

SYNOPSIS
     #include <pthread.h>

     unsigned int
     pthread_curcpu_np(void);

DESCRIPTION
     The pthread_curcpu_np() function provides a way for a thread to know which CPU it's cur-
     rently running on.

     Note that, unless the thread is bound to a specific CPU, the result might be already stale
     when the function returns.  However, it still can be useful as a hint to achieve better CPU
     locality.

RETURN VALUES
     The pthread_curcpu_np() function returns the integer identifier of the CPU which is cur-
     rently running the calling thread.

COMPATIBILITY
     The pthread_curcpu_np() function is a non-standard extension.
