terminate the calling thread
pthread_exit() function terminates the
calling thread and makes the value value_ptr available
to any successful join with the terminating thread. Any cancellation cleanup
handlers that have been pushed and are not yet popped are popped in the
reverse order that they were pushed and then executed. After all
cancellation handlers have been executed, if the thread has any
thread-specific data, appropriate destructor functions are called in an
unspecified order. Thread termination does not release any application
visible process resources, including, but not limited to, mutexes and file
descriptors, nor does it perform any process level cleanup actions,
including, but not limited to, calling
routines that may exist.
An implicit call to
pthread_exit() is made
when a thread other than the thread in which
was first invoked returns from the start routine that was used to create it.
The function's return value serves as the thread's exit status.
The behavior of

After a thread has terminated, the result of access to local
(auto) variables of the thread is undefined. Thus, references to local
variables of the exiting thread should not be used for the
The process will exit with an exit status of 0 after the last
thread has been terminated. The behavior is as if the implementation called

pthread_exit() function cannot return
to its caller.
pthread_exit() conforms to
ISO/IEC 9945-1:1996 (“POSIX.1”).
