       pthread_kill_other_threads_np - terminate all other threads in process

       #include <pthread.h>

       void pthread_kill_other_threads_np(void);

       pthread_kill_other_threads_np()	has an effect only in the LinuxThreads
       threading implementation.  On that implementation, calling  this	 func‐
       tion  causes  the  immediate termination of all threads in the applica‐
       tion, except the calling thread.	 The cancellation state and  cancella‐
       tion  type of the to-be-terminated threads are ignored, and the cleanup
       handlers are not called in those threads.

       This function is a nonstandard GNU extension; hence  the	 suffix	 "_np"
       (nonportable) in the name.

       pthread_kill_other_threads_np()	is intended to be called just before a
       thread calls  execve(2)	or  a  similar	function.   This  function  is
       designed to address a limitation in the obsolete LinuxThreads implemen‐
       tation whereby the other threads of an application  are	not  automati‐
       cally terminated (as POSIX.1-2001 requires) during execve(2).

       In  the	NPTL threading implementation, pthread_kill_other_threads_np()
       exists, but does nothing.  (Nothing  needs  to  be  done,  because  the
       implementation does the right thing during an execve(2).)

       execve(2),  pthread_cancel(3),  pthread_setcancelstate(3), pthread_set‐
       canceltype(3), pthreads(7)
