PTHREAD_SELF(P)		   POSIX Programmer's Manual	       PTHREAD_SELF(P)



PROLOG
       This  manual  page is part of the POSIX Programmer's Manual.  The Linux
       implementation of this interface may differ (consult the	 corresponding
       Linux  manual page for details of Linux behavior), or the interface may
       not be implemented on Linux.

NAME
       pthread_self - get the calling thread ID

SYNOPSIS
       #include <pthread.h>

       pthread_t pthread_self(void);


DESCRIPTION
       The pthread_self() function shall return the thread ID of  the  calling
       thread.

RETURN VALUE
       Refer to the DESCRIPTION.

ERRORS
       No errors are defined.

       The  pthread_self() function shall not return an error code of [EINTR].

       The following sections are informative.

EXAMPLES
       None.

APPLICATION USAGE
       None.

RATIONALE
       The pthread_self() function provides a capability similar to  the  get-
       pid()  function	for  processes and the rationale is the same: the cre-
       ation call does not provide the thread ID to the created thread.

FUTURE DIRECTIONS
       None.
