_LWP_EXIT(2)                  System Calls Manual                 _LWP_EXIT(2)

NAME
     _lwp_exit -- terminate the calling light-weight process

LIBRARY
     Standard C Library (libc, -lc)

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

     void
     _lwp_exit(void);

DESCRIPTION
     _lwp_exit() terminates the calling LWP.  If it is the last LWP in the
     process, the process exits with a status of 0.  If the LWP was not
     created in a detached state, then the system will not reclaim its LWP ID
     until its status is reported to another LWP in the process via
     _lwp_wait(2).

RETURN VALUES
     _lwp_exit() can never return.

SEE ALSO
