PTHREAD_DETACH(3)         OpenBSD Programmer's Manual        PTHREAD_DETACH(3)

     pthread_detach - detach a thread

     #include <pthread.h>

     pthread_detach(pthread_t thread);

     The pthread_detach() function is used to indicate to the implementation
     that storage for the thread thread can be reclaimed when the thread ter-
     minates. If thread has not terminated, pthread_detach() will not cause it
     to terminate. The effect of multiple pthread_detach() calls on the same
     target thread is unspecified.

     If successful,  the pthread_detach() function will return zero. Otherwise
     an error number will be returned to indicate the error. Note that the
     function does not change the value of errno as it did for some drafts of
     the standard. These early drafts also passed a pointer to pthread_t as
     the argument. Beware!

     pthread_detach() will fail if:

     [EINVAL]      The implementation has detected that the value specified by
                   thread does not refer to a joinable thread.

     [ESRCH]       No thread could be found corresponding to that specified by
                   the given thread ID, thread.


     pthread_detach() conforms to ISO/IEC 9945-1 ANSI/IEEE (``POSIX'') Std
     1003.1 Second Edition 1996-07-12.
