PR_GetCurrentThread

Returns the current thread object for the currently running code.

Syntax

#include <prthread.h>

PRThread* PR_GetCurrentThread(void);

Returns

Always returns a valid reference to the calling thread--a self-identity.

Description

Note: This is the only safe way to establish the identity of a thread. Creation and enumeration are both subject to race conditions.
