_LWP_DETACH(2)                System Calls Manual               _LWP_DETACH(2)

NAME
     _lwp_detach -- detach a light-weight process

LIBRARY
     Standard C Library (libc, -lc)

SYNOPSIS
     #include <&lt;lwp.h>&gt;

     int
     _lwp_detach(lwpid_t lwp);

DESCRIPTION
     _lwp_detach() causes a light-weight process to become detached, having
     the same effect as if the LWP was created with the LWP_DETACHED flag.

     The resources associated with a detached LWP will be automatically
     reclaimed by the system when the LWP exits.  Conversely, an attached
     LWP's resources will not be reclaimed until its status is reported to
     another LWP via _lwp_wait(2).

RETURN VALUES
     A 0 value indicates that the call succeeded.  A -1 return value indicates
     an error occurred and errno is set to indicate the reason.

ERRORS
     [EINVAL]  The LWP is already detached.

     [ESRCH]   No LWP can be found in the current process corresponding to
               that specified by lwp.

SEE ALSO
     _lwp_create(2), _lwp_wait(2)

HISTORY
     The _lwp_detach() system call first appeared in NetBSD 5.0.
