C++ Question

pthread sleep linux

I am creating a program with multiple threads using pthreads.

Is

sleep()
causing the process (all the threads) to stop executing or just the thread where I am calling
sleep
?

Answer

Just the thread. The POSIX documentation for sleep() says:

The sleep() function shall cause the calling thread to be suspended from execution...

usage: sleep(10) for 10 seconds sleep.
