PTHREAD_YIELD(3) Library Functions Manual PTHREAD_YIELD(3)

pthread_yieldyield control of the current thread

#include <pthread.h>


The () function resets the accumulated time slice of the current thread and then enters the thread scheduler, which resumes execution of the next thread ready to run. If no other thread is ready to run, control returns to the current thread.


pthread_yield() is a non-portable (but quite common) extension to IEEE Std 1003.1-2001 (“POSIX.1”).
