cc -mt [ flag... ] file...[ library... ] #include <thread.h>int thr_suspend(thread_t target_thread);
The thr_suspend() function immediately suspends the execution of the thread specified by target_thread . On successful return from thr_suspend() , the suspended thread is no longer executing. Once a thread is suspended, subsequent calls to thr_suspend() have no effect.
The thr_continue() function resumes the execution of a suspended thread. Once a suspended thread is continued, subsequent calls to thr_continue() have no effect.
A suspended thread will not be awakened by a signal. The signal stays pending until the execution of the thread is resumed by thr_continue() .
If successful, the thr_suspend() and thr_continue() functions return 0 . Otherwise, a non-zero value is returned to indicate the error.
The thr_suspend() or thr_continue() functions will fail if:
target_thread cannot be found in the current process.
target_thread was not suspended because a subsequent thr_continue() occurred before the suspend completed.
When thr_continue() returns EINVAL, target_thread has died and thr_join () must be called on it to reclaim its resources.
The thr_suspend() function will fail if:
Suspending target_thread will cause all threads in the process to be suspended.
