|PTHREAD_DETACH(3)||Library Functions Manual||PTHREAD_DETACH(3)|
pthread_detach() function is used to indicate to the implementation that storage for the thread thread can be reclaimed when the thread terminates. 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.
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:
pthread_detach() conforms to ISO/IEC 9945-1:1996 (“POSIX.1”).
