An NSPR thread.


#include <prthread.h>

typedef struct PRThread PRThread;


In NSPR, a thread is represented by a pointer to an opaque structure of type PRThread. This pointer is a required parameter for most of the functions that operate on threads.

A PRThread* is the successful result of creating a new thread. The identifier remains valid until it returns from its root function and, if the thread was created joinable, is joined.
