PTHREAD_KEY_DELETE(3)  FreeBSD Library Functions Manual	 PTHREAD_KEY_DELETE(3)

NAME
     pthread_key_delete	-- delete a thread-specific data key

LIBRARY
     Reentrant C Library (libc_r, -lc_r)
     POSIX Threads Library (libpthread,	-lpthread)
     1:1 Threading Library (libthr, -lthr)

SYNOPSIS
     #include <pthread.h>

     int
     pthread_key_delete(pthread_key_t key);

DESCRIPTION
     The pthread_key_delete() function deletes a thread-specific data key pre-
     viously returned by pthread_key_create().	The thread-specific data val-
     ues associated with key need not be NULL at the time that
     pthread_key_delete() is called.  It is the	responsibility of the applica-
     tion to free any application storage or perform any cleanup actions for
     data structures related to	the deleted key	or associated thread-specific
     data in any threads; this cleanup can be done either before or after
     pthread_key_delete() is called.  Any attempt to use key following the
     call to pthread_key_delete() results in undefined behavior.

     The pthread_key_delete() function is callable from	within destructor
     functions.	 Destructor functions are not invoked by pthread_key_delete().
     Any destructor function that may have been	associated with	key will no
     longer be called upon thread exit.

RETURN VALUES
     If	successful, the	pthread_key_delete() function will return zero.	 Oth-
     erwise an error number will be returned to	indicate the error.

ERRORS
     The pthread_key_delete() function will fail if:

     [EINVAL]		The key	value is invalid.

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

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