PTHREAD_YIELD(3)       FreeBSD Library Functions Manual	      PTHREAD_YIELD(3)

NAME
     pthread_yield -- yield control of the current thread

SYNOPSIS
     #include <pthread.h>

     void
     pthread_yield(void);

DESCRIPTION
     The pthread_yield() function resets the accumulated time slice of the
     current thread and	then enters the	thread scheduler, which	resumes	execu-
     tion of the next thread ready to run.  If no other	thread is ready	to
     run, control returns to the current thread.

SEE ALSO
     pthreads(3)

STANDARDS
     pthread_yield() is	a non-portable (but quite common) extension to IEEE
     Std 1003.1-2001 ("POSIX.1").
