PTHREAD_SETSPECIFIC(3)   BSD Library Functions Manual   PTHREAD_SETSPECIFIC(3)

NAME
     pthread_setspecific -- set a thread-specific data value

SYNOPSIS
     #include <pthread.h>

     int
     pthread_setspecific(pthread_key_t key, const void *value);

DESCRIPTION
     The pthread_setspecific() function associates a thread-specific value with a key obtained via a previ-ous previous
     ous call to pthread_key_create().  Different threads may bind different values to the same key.  These
     values are typically pointers to blocks of dynamically allocated memory that have been reserved for use
     by the calling thread.

     The effect of calling pthread_setspecific() with a key value not obtained from pthread_key_create(), or
     after key has been deleted with pthread_key_delete(), is undefined.

     pthread_setspecific() may be called from a thread-specific data destructor function; however, this may
     result in lost storage or infinite loops.

RETURN VALUES
     If successful,  the pthread_setspecific() function will return zero.  Otherwise, an error number will
     be returned to indicate the error.

ERRORS
     pthread_setspecific() will fail if:

     [EINVAL]           The key value is invalid.

     [ENOMEM]           Insufficient memory exists to associate the value with the key.

SEE ALSO
     pthread_getspecific(3), pthread_key_create(3), pthread_key_delete(3)

STANDARDS
     pthread_setspecific() conforms to ISO/IEC 9945-1:1996 (``POSIX.1'').
