PTHREAD_GETSPECIFIC(3) FreeBSD Library Functions Manual	PTHREAD_GETSPECIFIC(3)

NAME
     pthread_getspecific -- get	a thread-specific data value

LIBRARY
     POSIX Threads Library (libpthread,	-lpthread)

SYNOPSIS
     #include <pthread.h>

     void *
     pthread_getspecific(pthread_key_t key);

DESCRIPTION
     The pthread_getspecific() function	returns	the value currently bound to
     the specified key on behalf of the	calling	thread.

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

     The pthread_getspecific() function	may be called from a thread-specific
     data destructor function.

RETURN VALUES
     The pthread_getspecific() function	will return the	thread-specific	data
     value associated with the given key.  If no thread-specific data value is
     associated	with key, then the value NULL is returned.

ERRORS
     None.

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

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