LibHTTP API Reference – httplib_pthread_join()

httplib_pthread_join( thread, value_ptr );


Parameter Type Description
key pthread_t The ID of the thread to join
value_ptr void * Optional pointer to location where the terminating thread stored exit information

Return Value

Type Description
int Integer value with the result of the function


The platform independent function httplib_pthread_join() suspends the execution of the current thread and waits until another thread specified as parameter has terminated. The function returns 0 when successful and a non zero error code if something goes wrong. On systems which support it, the functionality is implemented as a direct call to pthread_join(). Otherwise own code is used which emulates the same functionality.

The parameter value_ptr is an optional pointer to a location where an exit pointer of the terminated thread is stored. If this parameter is NULL no exit information will be sent back. Please note that the value_ptr has only be implemented on systems which use a fall-through to pthread_join() but is ignored in other implementations.
