PTHREAD_DETACH(3)		   BSD Library Functions Manual 		PTHREAD_DETACH(3)

NAME
     pthread_detach -- detach a thread

LIBRARY
     POSIX Threads Library (libpthread, -lpthread)

SYNOPSIS
     #include <pthread.h>

     int
     pthread_detach(pthread_t thread);

DESCRIPTION
     The pthread_detach() function is used to indicate to the implementation that storage for the
     thread thread can be reclaimed when the thread terminates.  If thread has not terminated,
     pthread_detach() will not cause it to terminate.  The effect of multiple pthread_detach()
     calls on the same target thread is unspecified.

RETURN VALUES
     If successful,  the pthread_detach() function will return zero.  Otherwise an error number
     will be returned to indicate the error.

ERRORS
     pthread_detach() shall fail if:

     [EINVAL]		The value specified by thread does not refer to a joinable thread.

     [ESRCH]		No thread could be found corresponding to that specified by the given
			thread ID, thread.

SEE ALSO
     pthread_join(3)

STANDARDS
     The function conforms to IEEE Std 1003.1-2001 (``POSIX.1'').
