NAME
tkill - send a signal to a single process

SYNOPSIS
#include <sys/types.h>
#include <linux/unistd.h>

_syscall2(int, tkill, pid_t, tid, int, sig)

int tkill(pid_t tid, int sig);

DESCRIPTION
The tkill system call is analogous to kill(2), except when
the specified process is part of a thread group (created
by specifying the CLONE_THREAD flag in the call to clone).
Since all the processes in a thread group have the same
PID, they cannot be individually signalled with kill.
With tkill, however, one can address each process by its
unique TID.

RETURN VALUE
On success, zero is returned. On error, -1 is returned,
and errno is set appropriately.

ERRORS
EINVAL An invalid TID or signal was specified.

ESRCH No process with the specified TID exists.

EPERM The caller did not have permission to send the sig­
nal to the specified process. For a process to be
allowed to send a signal, it must either have root
privileges, or its real or effective user ID must
be equal to the real or saved set-user-ID of the
receiving process.

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

SEE ALSO
gettid(2), kill(2)
