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

     pthread_join - wait for thread termination

     #include <pthread.h>

     pthread_join(pthread_t thread, void **value_ptr);

     The pthread_join() function suspends execution of the calling thread un-
     til the target thread terminates unless the target thread has already

     On return from a successful pthread_join() call with a non-NULL value_ptr
     argument, the value passed to pthread_exit() by the terminating thread is
     stored in the location referenced by value_ptr. When a pthread_join() re-
     turns successfully, the target thread has been terminated. The results of
     multiple simultaneous calls to pthread_join() specifying the same target
     thread are undefined. If the thread calling pthread_join() is cancelled,
     then the target thread is not detached.

     A thread that has exited but remains unjoined counts against

     If successful,  the pthread_join() function will return zero. Otherwise
     an error number will be returned to indicate the error.

     pthread_join() 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.

     [EDEADLK]     A deadlock was detected or the value of thread specifies
                   the calling thread.

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