int pthread_kill(pthread_t thread, int sig);
Compile and link with -pthread.
The pthread_kill() function sends the signal sig to thread, a thread in
the same process as the caller. The signal is asynchronously directed
If sig is 0, then no signal is sent, but error checking is still per-
formed; this can be used to check for the existence of a thread ID.
On success, pthread_kill() returns 0; on error, it returns an error
number, and no signal is sent.
EINVAL An invalid signal was specified.
ESRCH No thread with the ID thread could be found.
Signal dispositions are process-wide: if a signal handler is installed,
the handler will be invoked in the thread thread, but if the disposi-
tion of the signal is "stop", "continue", or "terminate", this action
will affect the whole process.
