pthread_getsequence_np(3)pthread_getsequence_np(3)NAMEpthread_getsequence_np - Obtains the unique identifier for the speci‐
unsigned long pthread_getsequence_np(
pthread_t thread );
DECthreads POSIX 1003.1c Library (libpthread.so)
Thread object whose sequence number is to be obtained.
This routine obtains and returns the DECthreads thread sequence number
for the thread identified by the thread object specified in the thread
The thread sequence number provides a unique identifier for each exist‐
ing thread. A thread's thread sequence number is never reused while the
thread exists, but can be reused after the thread terminates. The
debugger interfaces use this sequence number to identify each thread in
commands and in display output.
The result of calling this routine is undefined if the thread argument
does not specify a valid thread object.
No errors are returned. This routine returns the DECthreads thread
sequence number for the thread identified by the thread object speci‐
fied in the thread argument. The result of calling this routine is
undefined if the thread argument does not specify a valid thread.
