detach state attribute in thread attributes object
int pthread_attr_setdetachstate(pthread_attr_t *attr, int detachstate);
int pthread_attr_getdetachstate(pthread_attr_t *attr, int *detachstate);
Compile and link with -pthread.
The pthread_attr_setdetachstate() function sets the detach state
attribute of the thread attributes object referred to by attr to the
value specified in detachstate. The detach state attribute determines
whether a thread created using the thread attributes object attr will
be created in a joinable or a detached state.
The following values may be specified in detachstate:
Threads that are created using attr will be created in a
Threads that are created using attr will be created in a join-
The default setting of the detach state attribute in a newly initial-
ized thread attributes object is PTHREAD_CREATE_JOINABLE.
The pthread_attr_getdetachstate() returns the detach state attribute of
the thread attributes object attr in the buffer pointed to by detach-
On success, these functions return 0; on error, they return a nonzero
pthread_attr_setdetachstate() can fail with the following error:
EINVAL An invalid value was specified in detachstate.
See pthread_create(3) for more details on detached and joinable
A thread that is created in a joinable state should eventually either
be joined using pthread_join(3) or detached using pthread_detach(3);
