NAME

       sched_yield - yield the processor

SYNOPSIS

       #include <sched.h>

       int sched_yield(void);

DESCRIPTION

       A  process can relinquish the processor voluntarily without blocking by
       calling sched_yield().  The process will then be moved to  the  end  of
       the queue for its static priority and a new process gets to run.

       Note:  If  the  current  process  is  the  only  process in the highest
       priority list at that time, this process will continue to run  after  a
       call to sched_yield().

       POSIX    systems   on   which   sched_yield()   is   available   define
       _POSIX_PRIORITY_SCHEDULING in <unistd.h>.

RETURN VALUE

       On success, sched_yield() returns 0.  On error,  -1  is  returned,  and
       errno is set appropriately.
