PTHREAD_DETACH(3) Library Functions Manual PTHREAD_DETACH(3)
pthread_detach -- detach a thread
POSIX Threads Library (libpthread, -lpthread)
The pthread_detach() function is used to indicate to the implementation
that storage for the thread thread can be reclaimed when the thread
terminates. If thread has not terminated, pthread_detach() will not
cause it to terminate. The effect of multiple pthread_detach() calls on
the same target thread is unspecified.
If successful, the pthread_detach() function will return zero.
Otherwise an error number will be returned to indicate the error.
pthread_detach() shall fail if:
[EINVAL] The value specified by thread does not refer to a
[ESRCH] No thread could be found corresponding to that
specified by the given thread ID, thread.
The function conforms to IEEE Std 1003.1-2001 (``POSIX.1'').
