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_cre-
ate(3)). Finally, execution of the calling thread is stopped.
The retval argument is the return value of the thread. It can be con-
sulted from another thread using pthread_join(3).
The pthread_exit function never returns.
