SYNOPSIS


#include <pthread.h> 

int pthread_sigqueue(pthread_t *thread, int sig, const union sigval value);

Compile and link with -pthread.

Feature Test Macro Requirements for glibc (see feature_test_macros(7)):

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

This function is a GNU extension.
