#include <pthread.h> pthread_t pthread_self(void); STANDARDS
Interfaces documented on this reference page conform to industry standards as follows: IEEE Std 1003.1c-1995, POSIX System Application Program Interface PARAMETERS
This routine returns the address of the calling thread's own thread identifier. For example, you can use this thread object to obtain the calling thread's own sequence number. To do so, pass the return value from this routine in a call to the pthread_getsequence_np(3) routine, as follows: unsigned long this_thread_nbr; . . . this_thread_nbr = pthread_getsequence_np( pthread_self( ) ); . . . The return value from the pthread_self(3) routine becomes meaningless after the calling thread is destroyed. RETURN VALUES
Returns the address of the calling thread's own thread object. ERRORS
