Base WG Resolution Ref: bwg97-004
Topic: pthread.h

This is an approved Base Working Group Resolution for XSH Issue 5.

Last update: 05 February,1998

								97 #004


	Topic:			pthread.h
	Relevant Sections:	pthread.h
	Spec:			XSH Issue 5

Resolution Request:

In XSH Issue 5 volume 2, the <pthread.h> header omits prototypes
for pthread_atfork, pthread_kill and pthread_sigmask.  

Resolution Response
XSH5 followed the function synopses in POSIX 1003.1c-1995.

pthread_atfork() is in <unistd.h>
pthread_kill() and pthread_sigmask() are in <signal.h>

Some of the POSIX 1003.1c-1995 synopses contradict
section 2.7.3 of P1003.1c, as such POSIX is ambiguous.

See PASC interpretations P1003.1c-1995 #4, #9, #41 and #42 which
deal with various header issues.
