PTHREAD_ONCE(3)        FreeBSD Library Functions Manual        PTHREAD_ONCE(3)

NAME
     pthread_once - dynamic package initialization

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

SYNOPSIS
     #include <pthread.h>

     pthread_once_t once_control = PTHREAD_ONCE_INIT;
     int
     pthread_once(pthread_once_t *once_control, void (*init_routine)(void));

DESCRIPTION
     The first call to pthread_once() by any thread in a process, with a given
     once_control, will call the init_routine() with no arguments.  Subsequent
     calls to pthread_once() with the same once_control will not call the
     init_routine().  On return from pthread_once(), it is guaranteed that
     init_routine() has completed.  The once_control parameter is used to
     determine whether the associated initialization routine has been called.

     The function pthread_once() is not a cancellation point.  However, if
     init_routine() is a cancellation point and is cancelled, the effect on
     once_control is as if pthread_once() was never called.

     The constant PTHREAD_ONCE_INIT is defined by header <pthread.h>.

     The behavior of pthread_once() is undefined if once_control has automatic
     storage duration or is not initialized by PTHREAD_ONCE_INIT.

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

ERRORS
     None.

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

FreeBSD 11.0-PRERELEASE          April 4, 1996         FreeBSD 11.0-PRERELEASE
