PTHREAD_ATTR_GET_NP(3)					   BSD Library Functions Manual 				    PTHREAD_ATTR_GET_NP(3)

pthread_attr_get_np -- get attributes of existing thread LIBRARY
POSIX Threads Library (libpthread, -lpthread) SYNOPSIS
#include <pthread.h> int pthread_attr_get_np(pthread_t thread, pthread_attr_t *attr); int pthread_getattr_np(pthread_t thread, pthread_attr_t *attr); DESCRIPTION
The pthread_attr_get_np() and pthread_getattr_np() functions can be used to retrieve attributes of a running thread. The result is stored to attr. For pthread_attr_get_np() attr should be initialized prior to the call by using pthread_attr_init(3). pthread_getattr_np() does this auto- matically. For both functions attr should be freed when it is not in use anymore with pthread_attr_destroy(3). Most fields of attr are the same ones provided during thread creation time as a parameter to pthread_create(3). The exceptions include: o The detach state -- a joinable thread may have detached itself after the creation. o The guard size, which may vary if the application has allocated its own thread stack. o The stack address and size; pthread_attr_get_np() will always return the thread's real stack address and size, regardless of the values in the original attributes structure. The returned pthread_attr_t structure is supposed to be used in conjunction with the pthread_attr_get*() functions to retrieve individual values from the structure. When the returned attr is no longer needed, it should be destroyed by using pthread_attr_destroy(3). RETURN VALUES
Upon successful completion, pthread_attr_get_np() and pthread_getattr_np() return 0. Otherwise an error number is returned to indicate the error. COMPATIBILITY
The pthread_attr_get_np() and pthread_getattr_np() functions are non-standard extensions. ERRORS
The pthread_attr_get_np() and pthread_getattr_np() functions will fail if: [ENOMEM] Insufficient memory. [ESRCH] Non-existent thread. SEE ALSO

Thread attributes are used to specify parameters to pthread_create(). One attribute object can be used in multiple calls to pthread_create(), with or without modifications between calls. The pthread_attr_init() function initializes attr with all the default thread attributes. The pthread_attr_destroy() function destroys attr. The pthread_attr_set*() functions set the attribute that corresponds to each function name. The pthread_attr_get*() functions copy the value of the attribute that corresponds to each function name to the location pointed to by the second function parameter. RETURN VALUES
If successful, these functions return 0. Otherwise, an error number is returned to indicate the error. ERRORS
The pthread_attr_init() function will fail if: [ENOMEM] Out of memory. The pthread_attr_destroy() function will fail if: [EINVAL] Invalid value for attr. SEE ALSO
