LIBPTHREAD(3LIB) Interface Libraries LIBPTHREAD(3LIB)


NAME


libpthread - POSIX threads library

SYNOPSIS


cc -mt [ flag... ] file... -lpthread [ -lrt library... ]


DESCRIPTION


Historically, functions in this library provided POSIX threading support.
See standards(5). This functionality now resides in libc(3LIB).

This library is maintained to provide backward compatibility for both
runtime and compilation environments. The shared object is implemented as
a filter on libc.so.1. New application development need not specify
-lpthread although doing so has no effect.

INTERFACES


The shared object libpthread.so.1 provides the public interfaces defined
below. See Intro(3) for additional information on shared object
interfaces.
