DESCRIPTIONThe 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 detached state.
- Threads that are created using attr will be created in a joinable state.
The default setting of the detach state attribute in a newly initialized thread attributes object is PTHREAD_CREATE_JOINABLE.
RETURN VALUEOn success, these functions return 0; on error, they return a nonzero error number.
ERRORSpthread_attr_setdetachstate(3) can fail with the following error:
- An invalid value was specified in detachstate.
