Iam new to c programming and needs some help.
for(t=0; t<NUM_THREADS; t++)
taskids[t] = (long *) malloc(sizeof(long));
*taskids[t] = t;
printf("Creating thread %ld\n", t);
rc = pthread_create(&threads[t], NULL, PrintHello, (void *) taskids[t]);
This code fragment demonstrates how to pass a simple integer to each thread. The calling thread uses a unique data structure for each thread, insuring that each thread's argument remains intact throughout the program. Iam not able to understand how this is happening can somebody explain it??
