PTHREAD_DETACH(3)          Library Functions Manual          PTHREAD_DETACH(3)

NAME
     pthread_detach -- detach a thread

LIBRARY
     POSIX Threads Library (libpthread, -lpthread)

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

     int
     pthread_detach(pthread_t thread);

DESCRIPTION
     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.

RETURN VALUES
     If successful,  the pthread_detach() function will return zero.
     Otherwise an error number will be returned to indicate the error.

ERRORS
     pthread_detach() shall fail if:

     [EINVAL]           The value specified by thread does not refer to a
                        joinable thread.

     [ESRCH]            No thread could be found corresponding to that
                        specified by the given thread ID, thread.

SEE ALSO
     pthread_join(3)

STANDARDS
     The function conforms to IEEE Std 1003.1-2001 (``POSIX.1'').
