pthread_exit(3)						       pthread_exit(3)

       pthread_exit - Terminates the calling thread

       #include <pthread.h>

       void pthread_exit(
	       void *value_ptr );

       DECthreads POSIX 1003.1c Library (

       Interfaces  documented on this reference page conform to industry stan‐
       dards as follows:

       IEEE Std 1003.1c-1995, POSIX System Application Program Interface

       Value copied and returned to the caller of pthread_join(3).  Note  that
       void  *	is  used as a universal datatype, not as a pointer. DECthreads
       treats the value_ptr as a  value	 and  stores  it  to  be  returned  by

       This  routine  terminates  the  calling thread and makes a status value
       (value_ptr) available to any  thread  that  calls  pthread_join(3)  and
       specifies the terminating thread.

       Any  cleanup handlers that have been pushed and not yet popped from the
       stack, are popped in the reverse order that they were pushed  and  then
       executed.   After  all cleanup handlers have been executed, appropriate
       destructor functions shall be called in an  unspecified	order  if  the
       thread  has  any	 thread-specific  data.	 Thread	 termination  does not
       release any application-visible process resources, including,  but  not
       limited	to  mutexes  and  file	descriptors,  nor  does it perform any
       process-level cleanup actions, including, but not  limited  to  calling
       any atexit routine that may exist.

       An  implicit  call  to  pthread_exit(3) is issued when a thread returns
       from the start routine that was used to create  it.  DECthreads	writes
       the  function's return value as the return value in the thread's thread
       object.	 The  process  exits  when  the	 last  running	thread	 calls

       After  a thread has terminated, the result of access to local (that is,
       explicitly or implicitly declared auto)	variables  of  the  thread  is
       undefined.  So,	references  to	local variables of the existing thread
       should not be used for the value_ptr argument  of  the  pthread_exit(3)
