Manual Section... (3) - page: pthread_equal
NAMEpthread_equal - compare thread IDs
#include <pthread.h> int pthread_equal(pthread_t t1, pthread_t t2); Compile and link with -pthread.
DESCRIPTIONThe pthread_equal() function compares two thread identifiers.
RETURN VALUEIf the two thread IDs are equal, pthread_equal() returns a nonzero value; otherwise, it returns 0.
ERRORSThis function always succeeds.
NOTESThe pthread_equal() function is necessary because thread IDs should be considered opaque: there is no portable way for applications to directly compare two pthread_t values.
