PTHREAD_ATTR_GET_NP(3)	 BSD Library Functions Manual	PTHREAD_ATTR_GET_NP(3)

NAME
     pthread_attr_get_np — get attributes of existent thread

LIBRARY
     POSIX Threads Library (libpthread, -lpthread)

SYNOPSIS
     #include <pthread_np.h>

     int
     pthread_attr_get_np(pthread_t pid, pthread_attr_t *dst);

DESCRIPTION
     The pthread_attr_get_np() function is used to get existent thread's
     attributes.  Most fields of pthread_attr_t structure are exact values of
     attributes provided at thread creation time (as parameter to
     pthread_create(3) function), except for the stack address.

     Value returned as dst is supposed to be used in conjunction with
     pthread_attr_get*() functions to retrieve individual values from
     pthread_attr_t structure.	Parameter dst should point to allocated memory
     area big enough to fit this structure.

     It is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED to use pthread_attr_init(3) function to allocate
     attribute storage.

IMPLEMENTATION NOTES
     The pthread_attr_get_np() function will always return a pointer to the
     thread's real stack address, regardless of its value in the original
     attributes structure.

RETURN VALUES
     If successful, pthread_attr_get_np() function returns 0.  Otherwise, an
     error number is returned to indicate the error.

EXAMPLES
     size_t
     my_thread_stack_size(pthread_t pid)
     {
	 pthread_attr_t attr;
	 size_t size;

	 pthread_attr_init(&attr);
	 pthread_attr_get_np(pid, &attr);
	 pthread_attr_getstacksize(&attr, &size);
	 pthread_attr_destroy(&attr);
	 return(size);
     }

ERRORS
     The pthread_attr_get_np() function will fail if:

     [EINVAL]		Invalid value for one of given parameters.

     [ESRC]		No thread could be found corresponding to that speci‐
			fied by the given thread ID.
