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

NAME
     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 automatically.

     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.  Other-
     wise 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.
