_LWP_WAKEUP(2)                System Calls Manual               _LWP_WAKEUP(2)

NAME
     _lwp_wakeup -- make a blocked light-weight process runnable

LIBRARY
     Standard C Library (libc, -lc)

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

     int
     _lwp_wakeup(lwpid_t lwp);

DESCRIPTION
     _lwp_wakeup() makes a blocked LWP runnable.  The blocked LWP must be in
     LSSLEEP state.  Unblocking the LWP does not guarantee that it will make
     progress; it may block again as soon as it resumes execution in the
     kernel.

RETURN VALUES
     Upon successful completion, _lwp_wakeup() returns a value of 0.
     Otherwise, an error code is returned to indicate the error.

ERRORS
     _lwp_wakeup() will fail if:

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

     [ENODEV]  The specified LWP is not in LSSLEEP state.

     [EBUSY]   The specified LWP is blocked in an uninterruptible sleep.

HISTORY
     The _lwp_wakeup() system call first appeared in NetBSD 2.0.
