"SYNOPSIS"

"int get_thread_area (struct user_desc *"u_info);

"DESCRIPTION"

get_thread_area returns an entry in the current thread’s Thread Local Storage (TLS) array. The index of the entry corresponds to the value of u_info->entry_number, passed in by the user. If the value is in bounds, get_thread_info copies the corresponding TLS entry into the area pointed to by u_info.

"RETURN VALUE"

get_thread_area returns 0 on success. Otherwise, it returns -1 and sets errno appropriately.

ERRORS

EINVAL u_info->entry_number is out of bounds.
EFAULT u_info is an invalid pointer.

"CONFORMING TO"

get_thread_area is Linux specific and should not be used in programs that are intended to be portable.
