PR_SetThreadPriority

Sets the priority of a specified thread.

Syntax

#include <prthread.h>

void PR_SetThreadPriority(
   PRThread *thread,
   PRThreadPriority priority);

Parameters

PR_SetThreadPriority has the following parameters:

thread
A valid identifier for the thread whose priority you want to set.
priority
The priority you want to set.

Description

Modifying the priority of a thread other than the calling thread is risky. It is difficult to ensure that the state of the target thread permits a priority adjustment without ill effects. It is preferable for a thread to specify itself in the thread parameter when it calls PR_SetThreadPriority.
