DESCRIPTIONThe pthread_sigqueue() function performs a similar task to sigqueue(3), but, rather than sending a signal to a process, it sends a signal to a thread in the same process as the calling thread.
RETURN VALUEOn success, pthread_sigqueue() returns 0; on error, it returns an error number.
- The limit of signals which may be queued has been reached. (See signal(7) for further information.)
- sig was invalid.
- pthread_sigqueue() is not supported on this system.
- thread is not valid.
VERSIONSThe pthread_sigqueue() function first appeared in glibc 2.11.
