httplib_pthread_join( thread, value_ptr );
||The ID of the thread to join|
||Optional pointer to location where the terminating thread stored exit information|
||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.
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.
