EXIT_GROUP(2) System Calls Manual EXIT_GROUP(2)

NAME

exit_group - exit all threads in a process

Standard C library (libc, -lc)

SYNOPSIS

#include <sys/syscall.h>       /* Definition of SYS_* constants */
#include <unistd.h>
noreturn void syscall(SYS_exit_group, int status);

Note: glibc provides no wrapper for exit_group(), necessitating the use of syscall(2).

This system call terminates all threads in the calling process's thread group.

RETURN VALUE

This system call does not return.

VERSIONS

This call is present since Linux 2.5.35.

STANDARDS
