pthread_cleanup_push()

establish cancellation handlers 

Function


SYNOPSIS

#include <pthread.h>

void pthread_cleanup_push(void (*handler)(void *), void *arg);


DESCRIPTION

The pthread_cleanup_push() function pushes the specified cancellation cleanup handler onto the cancellation cleanup stack of the calling thread. When a thread exits or is cancelled, and its cancellation cleanup stack is not empty, the cleanup handlers are invoked with the specified argument in last-in-first-out order from the cancellation cleanup stack.

pthread_cleanup_push() and pthread_cleanup_pop() must be paired within the same lexical scope (that is, within a bracketed ({}) statement list). The code does not compile otherwise.

Refer to pthread_cancel() for a more detailed discussion of thread cancellation.
