pthread_exit - terminate the calling thread
void pthread_exit(void *retval);
!pthread_exit! terminates the execution of the calling thread. All
cleanup handlers that have been set for the calling thread with
!pthread_cleanup_push!(3) are executed in reverse order (the most
recently pushed handler is executed first). Finalization functions for
thread-specific data are then called for all keys that have non-!NULL!
values associated with them in the calling thread (see
!pthread_key_create!(3)). Finally, execution of the calling thread is
The |retval| argument is the return value of the thread. It can be
consulted from another thread using !pthread_join!(3).
The !pthread_exit! function never returns.
