NAME

       pthread_yield - yield the processor

SYNOPSIS

       #include <pthread.h>

       int pthread_yield(void);

       Compile and link with -pthread.

DESCRIPTION

       pthread_yield()  causes the calling thread to relinquish the CPU.  The thread is placed at
       the end of the run queue for its static priority and another thread is scheduled  to  run.
       For further details, see sched_yield(2)

RETURN VALUE

       On success, pthread_yield() returns 0; on error, it returns an error number.

ERRORS

       On  Linux,  this  call  always succeeds (but portable and future-proof applications should
       nevertheless handle a possible error return).

CONFORMING TO

       This call is nonstandard, but present on several  other  systems.   Use  the  standardized
       sched_yield(2) instead.

NOTES

       On Linux, this function is implemented as a call to sched_yield(2).
