Synopsis

#include <pthread.h>
int pthread_sigqueue( pthread_t *thread,
  int sig,
  const union sigval value);

pthread_sigqueue():
_GNU_SOURCE

DESCRIPTION

The pthread_sigqueue() function performs a similar task to sigqueue(3), but, rather than sending a signal to a process, it sends a signal to a thread in the same process as the calling thread.

The thread argument is the ID of a thread in the same process as the caller. The sig argument specifies the signal to be sent. The value argument specifies data to accompany the signal; see sigqueue(3) for details.

RETURN VALUE

On success, pthread_sigqueue() returns 0; on error, it returns an error number.

ERRORS

EAGAIN

The limit of signals which may be queued has been reached. (See signal(7) for further information.)

EINVAL

sig was invalid.

ENOSYS

pthread_sigqueue() is not supported on this system.

ESRCH

thread is not valid.

VERSIONS

The pthread_sigqueue() function first appeared in glibc 2.11.

CONFORMING TO
