PTHREAD_SET_NAME_NP(3) FreeBSD Library Functions Manual	PTHREAD_SET_NAME_NP(3)

NAME
     pthread_set_name_np, pthread_get_name_np -- set the name of a thread

SYNOPSIS
     #include <pthread.h>
     #include <pthread_np.h>

     void
     pthread_set_name_np(pthread_t thread, const char *name);

     void
     pthread_get_name_np(pthread_t thread, char	*name, size_t len);

DESCRIPTION
     The pthread_set_name_np() function	associates name	with thread.  This can
     be	useful for debugging, as the name is displayed in the thread status as
     displayed when the	process	receives the SIGINFO signal.

     The string	pointed	to by name is copied, and so need not be valid for the
     life of the thread.

     The pthread_get_name_np() function	retrieves name associated with thread.

SEE ALSO
     pthreads(3)

STANDARDS
     These functions are non-portable and may not be supported with the	above
     semantics on other	POSIX systems.

FreeBSD	13.0		       February	4, 2019			  FreeBSD 13.0
