Use pthread_attr_getdetachstate(3THR) to retrieve the thread create state, which can be either detached or joined.


int	pthread_attr_getdetachstate(const pthread_attr_t *tattr,
    int *detachstate;
#include <pthread.h>

pthread_attr_t tattr;
int detachstate;
int ret;

/* get detachstate of thread */
ret = pthread_attr_getdetachstate (&tattr, &detachstate);

Return Values

pthread_attr_getdetachstate() returns zero after completing successfully. Any other returned value indicates that an error occurred. If the following condition occurs, the function fails and returns the corresponding value.
