       pthread_getname_np  -  Obtain the object name from the thread object of
       an existing thread

       #include <pthread.h>

       int pthread_getname_np(
	       pthread_thread_t thread,
	       char *name,
	       size_t len );

       Thread object whose object name is to be obtained.  Location  to	 store
       the  obtained  object  name.  Length in bytes of buffer at the location
       specified by name.

       This routine copies the object name from the thread object specified by
       thread  to  the	buffer at the location name.  Before calling this rou‐
       tine, your program must allocate the buffer indicated by name.

       The object name is a C language string and provides an identifier  that
       is  meaningful  to  a person debugging a DECthreads-based multithreaded
       application.  The maximum number of characters in the  object  name  is

       If  the	specified  thread  object  has not been previously set with an
       object name, this routine copies a C language null string into the buf‐
       fer at location name.

       This  routine contrasts with pthread_attr_getname_np, which obtains the
       object name attribute in a thread attributes object  that  is  used  to
       create a new thread.

       If  an  error  condition	 occurs, this routine returns an integer value
       indicating the type of error. Possible return values  are  as  follows:
       Successful completion.  The thread specified by thread does not exist.
